Matthews stabbed her client multiple times.

(VI CONSORTIUM) — A female sex worker was arrested and charged with second-degree attempted murder on Friday night after allegedly stabbing a male client multiples about his body, V.I.P.D. Public Information Officer Glen Dratte announced.

The incident occurred on May 22; the arrest warrant was issued by the Superior Court of the Virgin Islands.

Mr. Dratte said the 911 emergency call center received a call in reference to a stabbing that had occurred in the Estate Coble area in Frederiksted.

The suspect, identified as 33-year-old Tasha A. Matthews, was engaging in an act of prostitution with an adult male client, and refused to perform a sexual position requested by the client, according to Mr. Dratte.

The client then started to argue with Ms. Matthews, which then turned into a physical altercation between the client and Ms. Matthews, and ended with Ms. Matthews stabbing the client multiple times.

The injuries that the client sustained were so severe that he had to undergo surgery, according to police.

Police did not say what Ms. Matthews used to stab the client.

Prostitution is illegal in the U.S. Virgin Islands, although brothels have operated in the territory for decades.

Unable to make bail of $75,000, Ms. Matthews was remanded to the Golden Grove Detention Center pending her advisement hearing.
