ST. CROIX - Police are seeking assistance from the community to help them locate a robbery suspect who they consider to be armed and dangerous.
V.I. Police spokeswoman Melody Rames said Tuesday afternoon that Criminal Investigation Bureau detectives have issued a wanted poster for 22-year-old Martin Isidore, who she said is wanted in connection with a first-degree robbery.
Police are warning the community that individuals who encounter Isidore should be cautious because he fired shots during a recent robbery.
Police said Isidore is 5 feet, 5 inches tall and weighs 145 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes and has a thin rectangular-shaped birthmark on his forehead above his right eye.
Rames said that after wearing his hair in large braids for some time, Isidore has since cut his hair and wears it in a low fade haircut. He frequents the WIR Supermarket, also known as Mon Bijou bottom shop, and the former La Loma Grocery store, which is now closed.
Police said Isidore was involved in a first-degree robbery that occurred at 2:09 a.m. on July 13 at the Hidden Island Bar and Restaurant in Estate Glynn.
Anyone who sees Isidore or knows his location can contact detectives at 712-6037, 712-6077 or 911 or call the Crime Stoppers USVI anonymous tip line at 1-800-222-8477.
