Police Investigate Burglary at JFK Housing

Officers of the V.I. Police Department on Sunday investigated a report that a man had broken into his girlfriend’s apartment and, after an altercation, walked out with her cell phone.

Police said officers on regular patrol were notified by dispatchers of a burglary in progress at the John F. Kennedy housing community. Arriving at the scene, officers met with the victim who related the following information:

At roughly 10 p.m. Saturday she and her boyfriend, whose name was not released by police, got into a verbal disagreement. She said she asked him to leave the apartment in order to avoid an altercation.

She said that at 12:55 a.m. Sunday, she and two men were in her apartment when her boyfriend broke the rear balcony door, entered the apartment and began to accuse her of cheating on him.
