Man Rapes Another Man While He Was Asleep (Update)

Crime / News / Virgin Islands / August 9, 2018

Update, Friday August 10: The man who was raped by another man while he was asleep, told police that he was drugged by the aggressor — information the V.I.P.D. did not include in its initial release, but was made available to The Consortium by a family member of the victim.

V.I.P.D. Public Information Officer Glen Dratte told The Consortium early Friday that the victim told police he was given an edible that resembled marijuana cookie, and after consuming 1 1/2, he fell asleep. The family member furnished even more information, telling The Consortium that the victim said he was given something to drink as well, along with the edible, and that the aggressor, identified by police as 27-year-old Teshawn Mills, seen above, was blowing marijuana smoke in his face.

“A few minutes after, he started feeling funny and his chest started to hurt,” the family member said. The family member added that the victim told Mr. Mills that he was not feeling well, but Mr. Mills started laughing at the victim.

The victim told police that he fell asleep after being drugged, and was raped by Mr. Mills. Mr. Mills admitted to police that he sexually assaulted the victim who, by the way, had only recently turned 18 in January, according to the family member.

Original Story: ST. THOMAS — A man raped another man while the rape victim was sleeping, V.I.P.D. Public Information Officer Glen Dratte announced Thursday.

According to Mr. Dratte, on June 23 2018 at approximately 7:00 p.m., the V.I.P.D.’s domestic violence unit in St. Thomas was notified of a sexual assault incident that occurred on June 22 of the same year.

When contact was made with the victim, he stated that he was at a male acquaintance’s residence, and after falling asleep, he recognized that he was being sexually assaulted.

Today at approximately 11:30 a.m., 27-year-old Teshawn Mills, seen above, was at the Criminal Investigation Bureau where he was placed under arrest for first-degree rape, Mr. Dratte said.

According to police, Mr. Mills waived his rights and answered questions posed by the V.I.P.D. investigators, and gave a statement admitting to having sexual intercourse with the victim. Mr. Mills was then booked, processed, and turned over to the Bureau of Corrections pending his advisement hearing.
