ST. THOMAS — A St. Thomas man was arrested Saturday after police say he fired his gun while pistol-whipping another man in American Yacht Harbor, and forced two women to file a false police report in an effort to cover up the crime.

Valmon Glasford, 22, was arrested and charged with third-degree assault, illegal discharge of a firearm, use of a firearm in the commission of a violent crime, and reckless endangerment, according to the probable cause fact sheet filed by police in V.I. Superior Court.
