Two female joggers were molested along South Church Street, days apart from each other. Police say both attacks happened between 7:00 am and 7:30 am on Thursday and Saturday of last week.
In both cases, a man leaped from the bushes and assaulted the women, then ran off. The RCIPS believes it is a possiblity that both women were attacked by the same person, however they’re are open to the idea that it maybe two separate attackers.
Inspector Lloyd Marriott says everyone has the right to exercise on Cayman’s roads and do so with peace of mind.
During an interview with Cayman 27, Inspector Marriott said, ” They (joggers) have a right to do what they do in a lawful way, and we are going to commit the level of resources necessary to ensure that people feel safe on the roads.” He added that the person(s) responsible for the attacks will be caught and punished to the full extent of the law.
“Those persons who go about and interfere with joggers, we want to send a message that we will commit all resources possible at our disposal to ensure that they are tracked down and given the full force of the law,” said Inspector Marriott.
Last year another man on a bicycle assaulted several women in West Bay. Police say they do not believe it is the same person who committed the acts in the most recent cases, and they are actively investigating the matter.
Neither of the women were injured during the most recent attacks and in both cases the assailant escaped on foot.
In each case both men were described as being of dark complexion, however Saturday’s attacker was described as having a shoulder length braided hairstyle.
Anyone with information about either of the assaults is encouraged to contact the George Town Police Station at 947-4222.
