Police Dismiss Rape Claims, Confirm Break-ins

By Staff Writer

St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN): Cromwell Henry, Superintendent of the Royal St. Christopher and Nevis Police Force, on Friday, December 18, 2020, confirmed, with WINN via a telephone interview, reports of break-ins in the Frigate Bay area in recent weeks.

Superintendent Henry said the  incidents are not alarming as members of the police and defense forces have been out in their numbers patrolling the Frigate Bay and Bird Rock area.

“We had three break-ins for the month of November, in Frigate Bay, and one break-in for December. Three in a month, while we would prefer none, is not alarming, and one for December, that is not alarming.”

Superintendent Henry used the opportunity to dismiss false reports of rape in Frigate Bay. He said, “there was no rape in the Frigate Bay area”.

However, Mr. Henry stated that there was a report of an indecent assault in said area.

“The Special Victims Unit is investigating a report of indecent assault in Frigate Bay. The victim in that matter is not a resident of Frigate Bay. There is not a case where there is a sexual predator operating in the Frigate Bay area.”

Members of the public became aware of allegations of criminal activities in the area after several social media posts raised questions about the issues.
