A woman was robbed at gunpoint when driving to a friend’s house Wednesday night in Mount Pleasant, losing her car and suffering an injury to the head, the V.I. Police Department reported.
According to police, officers were dispatched at 11:23 p.m. to investigate the assault. At the scene, the woman – whose name was not released by police – told the officers she had been traveling to her friend’s home and noticed a vehicle followed her to that location.
