The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service is investigating an apparent armed robbery near Public Beach.
The RCIPS was alerted at 1:20am Tuesday (23 February) about a man who said he had left Calico Jack’s and was confronted while walking along West Bay Road toward Raleigh Quay. The victim says two men in a vehicle pulled up alongside him, and the passenger, dressed in black and his face covered with a scarf, displayed a knife and demanded his wallet. Police say the victim claimed he was kicked repeatedly until he threw his wallet. The suspects then sped off toward West Bay.
The man was treated at the Cayman Islands Hospital for minor injuries. Police ask anyone with information to call them on 949-4222 or the Miami-based call centre for CrimeStoppers at 800-TIPS.
