I missed the machete incident #5:

Feb. 18
Kenson Jolly, 25, of Estate Pastory Gardens, St. John, was arrested on first degree assault, third degree assault, mayhem, and possession of a dangerous weapon during the commission of a crime in connection with the machete stabbing of Rupert Walters on the night of Feb. 18, VIPD Public Information Officer Kevin Jackson has announced. According to Jackson, officers were dispatched to Cruz Bay at 9:21 the night of the incident with a report of a stabbing incident. The suspect was described as having been a black male wearing black clothing and carrying a machete. Officers discovered the stabbing victim bleeding from multiple stab wounds and just minutes after searching the surrounding area, encountered a bloodied Jolly, who matched the description of the suspect.
