Police on St. Croix are investigating a pair of unrelated cases that took place over the weekend, the V.I.P.D. reported.
• A man told police that at about 2:40 a.m. Sunday in Barren Spot he was at a party at a residence when he went outside and stood on the road along with several other people. The victim told police that an unknown man with a black mask over his face and carrying a black handgun approached him and said, “Give me everything.”
The victim said the man took his chain from around his neck and just walked away with it. He said the chain was a gold Cuban link chain with a lion’s head valued at about $1,900.
