Police on St. Croix issued a wanted poster Friday for a man they said assaulted a woman after being released from Golden Grove Adult Correctional Facility, where he had been incarcerated for assaulting the same woman in October.

Domestic Violence Unit detectives are seeking Carlton Walters in connection with charges of third-degree assault, third-degree burglary and possession of a dangerous weapon.

Following the first assault, the victim had filed a restraining order against Walters.

Police said that after his release from Golden Grove, Walters returned to the same woman's home on Dec. 10, entered without permission, threatened her by pointing a weapon in her face and assaulted her.

Walters also is charged with violating a restraining order and the terms of his probation.

Walters, who is considered armed and dangerous, is 6 feet, 3 inches tall and weighs 275 pounds. He has a dark brown complexion, brown eyes, black hair worn in braids and tattoos on both forearms and frequents Estates Peter's Rest and Clifton Hill.

Anyone with information about Walters' whereabouts can call the Domestic Violence Unit at 712-6026 or 911 or call the Crime Stoppers USVI tip line at 1-800-222-8477.
