The Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF) has arrested a male scooter rider who pulled a gun at police officers during a daylight incident on Thursday, August 19.
A RVIPF media release issued this morning said things unfolded around midday when officers of the East End Police Station visited the scene of a lone scooter accident near Delta Gas Station.
The rider had sustained visible injuries.
“While police waited for the arrival of the ambulance, the rider took out a handgun, pointed it at the three officers and then attempted to escape on foot into the Johnson
’s Ghut area,” the RVIPF reported.
The police said its Armed Response Team subsequently captured the gun-wielding biker.
He is presently in hospital receiving treatment for his injuries and charges are pending upon release, the RVIPF further said.
Investigations are ongoing.
