ST. THOMAS - A 17-year-old boy was beat up by three men while walking near the National Park Service dock in Red Hook on Sunday night.
V.I. Police responded to reports of a first-degree robbery about 8 p.m. in Red Hook and found that a boy had been robbed of his cell phone, a $20 bill and a black skull cap, according to St. Thomas-St. John Police Chief Darren Foy.
The boy had been walking near the dock area when the three men came up to him and demanded to search him, Foy said.
