Man robbed at gun point

| 06/04/2009

(CNS): Police said today (Monday, 6 April) that they are looking for witnesses to an alleged robbery which took place on Friday, 3 April, at about 9:10 pm near the DMS building on Dr Roys Drive, George Town. A 35-year-old victim told police that he was sitting in the driver’s seat of a car counting money when he felt a blow to his forehead and heard a man demand that he hand over the cash. He said he saw two men, one of which was holding what appeared to be a small handgun, and he handed the money to the offender.

The man said the offenders also took cash from his wallet when he then accidentally sounded the horn of the vehicle and the offenders ran towards the Fidelity Building and up Shedden Road. The man armed with the handgun was wearing a white short sleeved T-shirt and dark coloured 3/4 length shorts. He had a dark complexion, was slim built and had a narrow face resembling the soccer star Ronaldinho the victim said.

The second man wore a black shirt with a gold colored design on it and detectives from George Town CID who are investigating the incident would like to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time of the offence who might have important information or anyone who recognizes the description of the offenders.

Anyone who can help should contact Detective Constable Dave Morrison on 949-4222 or Crime Stoppers on 800-8477 (TIPS). All persons calling Crime Stoppers remain anonymous, and are eligible for a reward of up to $1000, should their information lead to an arrest or recovery of property/drugs.

    Some seem to be blaming the victim for the crime, the good old s"he was dressed provactive so it’s no surprise she was assaulted" excuse, a bit sad of a perspective as this is Cayman and shouldn’t we be blaming the criminal not the victim.

    As for counting money in the car in an business area on a friday night when the place will be deserted and a passer by happens to have a gun on him, seems a little to coincidental. Perhaps there is a possibilty of a deal going bad.

    Nothing suspicious about it…people do stupid things.  Only thing might be there was no approximate of how much money they did manage to get.

    I agree that assuming it is only expats committing the crimes is ignorance. 

    The police need to perform serveral sting operations and start randomly searching anyone that seems suspicious. 

    Only persons with something to hide or something illegal in their possession would have a problem with this.

    If they are expats then confiscate & liquidate all their belongings, use their money to buy the ticket, pack them up and ship them out ; report them to their countries authorities, what they do with them is their business – whatever money left over use to better Cayman – don’t waist Cayman’s money to keep them.  If they are locals then deal with them as the law will allow.

    Why are you sitting in your car counting money in the middle of the night with the doors and windows open?.     Are you Nuts or what?   You could do that one time in Cayman but, now a days you got to lock all doors and windows in your  car and in your house and go in the bathroom and lock that too and then start counting.  Now a days every body is suspicious.

    Why would you sit in the car and count money openly? Thats asking for trouble, especially as its  not the best area of town.

    If people exercised basic common sense and were more aware of their surroundings, this kind of crime and even more serious opportunistic crimes would surely decrease.

    I agree with previous poster as well that something smells fishy about this. The guy must be plain stupid or trying to pull of a con trick of some sort and make up a story to explain to his wife why he has no money or con the bank into reimbursing him.

    What is obvious is that the criminal element has no fear in Cayman.

    Throw the foreign criminals off the island, never to return, review work permit applications for criminal records and lock local criminals up.

    It isn’t rocket science…

      It always makes me laugh when people blame everything on expats – i wonder what would happen if we all left…….

      And how many doctors, nurses, teachers, lawyers, judges, cops, dentists, opticians, counsellors etc. would that leave?

      All it would leave is people working for PWD weilding machetes, firemen and politicians!


      Just read the press to see the % of drug dealers, firearms offences, assaults etc committed by CAYMANIANS. Of course some expats commit crime too but the problem with crime here is locals in the main and not foreigners. But its better to just blame the expats hey? Well i for one am counting down the days to leave, there are some great locals here who i will count as friends forever – but as for the rest………..
