St. Croix Man Man Arrested for Unlawful Sexual Contact

A St. Croix man was arrested Saturday for unlawful sexual contact, the V.I. Police Department reported.

On May 23, at approximately 7:35 p.m., an adult female and a minor female arrived at the Wilbur H. Francis Command Police Station to file a police report. The report concerned an incident of unlawful sexual contact involving the minor and an adult relative, according to the police report.

A detective from the Domestic Violence Unit led an investigation into the case, which revealed that Adrian Pinto began to inappropriately touch the minor victim shortly after he moved into the house, the police report stated.
