Have you seen this man?

(CNS): Chad Anglin, aged 30, from the West Bay area (photo left) is wanted by police for questioning in connection with a violent assault on a woman in the early hours of Thursday morning (17 June). The RCIPS says the woman was rescued by two patrolling officers who approached the car in which the attack took place but she sustained bruising to her face and a cut to her throat. The police are calling on the public to assist in tracing Anglin and released a photograph of him Friday. According to the RCIPS, just before 2:00 am that morning two officers from the RCIPS Uniform Support Group were on patrol in Garvin Road, West Bay. They approached a parked vehicle and interrupted a savage attack which was taking place on a young woman in the car. The offender ran off into the bushes as the officers approached.

Detective Chief Inspector Peter Kennett said, “The victim had sustained bruising to her face and a cut to her throat. She was bleeding heavily. Officers immediately called for assistance from other officers while they rendered first aid. An extensive police operation followed but as yet no arrests have been made. The officers, by going about their normal patrolling duty, clearly prevented what could have been an even worse attack. It’s imperative that we locate Chad Anglin as soon as possible. If anyone knows where he is they should contact police immediately.

“We hope the release of this photograph today will alert the public to the fact that we need to trace this individual urgently – butit also underlines our commitment in the RCIPS to use every means available to apprehend those suspected of violent crime as quickly as possible.”

Anyone with any information about this crime or the whereabouts of Anglin should inform the police immediately. Calls can also be made to Crime Stoppers on 800-8477 (TIPS).

    Is the police serious about this photo? Does this suspect hold the secret to eternal youth or what? He looks about sixteen. And he’s now, what, thirty? There are experts in age-relating photos in the US. Perhaps time to call them in?

    I am so sick and tired of the police trying to give themselves credit. I’m sure they just happened to roll by and find this girl.. What usual patrolling reallygoes on in this island? Really? If so, there would not be so many darn robberies. And this guy would not have managed to get away! You read things like this one day and then you read about criminals escaping out of the police station. And they expect to get pats on the back?! What ever happend to hand-cuffing criminals?

      Last time I was in Cayman I was dropping off a friend of mine at  her car late at night which was parked in a lot at an establishment (we met there earlier in the evening and took my car to another place). While we were sitting there for a few minutes making plans for the next day the police rolled up to make sure she was not in any danger. We were amazed at the "police presence" and "patrol".  It was about 2 a.m. and the lot was just about empty.

    I have to say – good job to the RCIP.  Finally, they do something that gives the public some confidence in them.  Now its up to us to work together with them and get this guy.

    Beating women, it’s just part of the local culture."

    I am a Caymanian male – and I have NEVER initiated any physical struggle with ANY female … or man for that matter.

    However, I have experienced physical assaults by no less than 4 of my past Caymanian girlfriends. Had I done even half of the things to women that I have had done onto me I would be rotting in Northward right now.

    (E.g. Attacked with high heeled shoes, slapped, punched, having drinking glasses hurled at me, hit with a clothing iron, dodged an airborne 1 litre vodka bottle, kicked, scratched etc. etc. etc.)

    By the way, these were / are all "respectable, beautiful and educated young professional Caymanian women".

    I am sure the following question is on the mind of many readers at this point:

    "What did you do to these women for them to react in such ways?"

    To that I say – does it matter?

    Had I been the aggressor there would have been no questions asked – I would have simply been just another "woman beater". Tell you what – within my age range – I know far more female "men beaters" than I know male "women beaters".

    Women get away with murder in this twisted modern society that we have created today.

    (Btw, this is not a situation unique to Cayman – in fact it appears to be a dilemma currently spreading throughout the "progressive" western world.)

    Good luck to us all.

    *The above was in no way regarding the serious offense outlined in the story.*

    Thank you RCIP for this type of patrolling and investigating the parked car.

    Sadly, the Premier has just approved/released the new budget which REDUCES these type of police patrols, while INCREASING "police security for Govt. officials" (himself and his).

    Didn’t realise expat kids were allowed in Gov schools, why have I been paying such extraordinary amounts for private school when if you what you say is correct then I could get my kids educated for free, well at least with all that duty and permit fees I pay or are paid on my behalf.

    If you are referring to private schools being all expat, I know it’s terrible allowing expat kids to get an education! maybe we ca dig a mine and get them to work 20 hours a day in it…..oh no cos then they will be accused of stealing Caymanian jobs.

    Grow up

      1. I say nothing in the post that suggested that expat children shouldn’t be educated. It was merely an observation of fact without any apparent negative connotation.

      2. You are falsely equating "local schools" with "govt. schools". All schools operating within these Islands are "local schools".

      3. It is not question of expats not being allowed into govt. schools. There is a problem of limited space, and Caymanian children are given preference. This is about to change as the Bill of Rights in the Constitution comes into effect. 

      4. You do not pay your work permit fees, your employer does. There are a great many infrastructural needs which occur as a result of the large expatriate population. The work permit fee does not cover all of these. 

      5. You appear to be struggling with paranoia.

    Please let us not be panic stricken in this situation.  This young man is just one of many that has fallen through the cracks in our society.  He is another son of the soil that is loved by his family and those who know him.  I have known him from birth and I have always found him to be polite ,respectable and likeable.   Sadly, I have seen him over the years become the victim of peer pressure, alcohol,  an unstable family life,  and a society that has abandoned, not only him, but others like him.

    Chad is a very talented young man and could have been a real asset to this society.  Admittedly he has had his chances but sadly so far he has failed but please let us not write him off.  There is no excuse for what he is alleged to have done and he  must face the consequences of his actions.  Let’s spare a thought for his 80yr old grandmother who has been the stableliser in his broken life.  She is hurting and I mean REAL BAD.  so lets lend her some support,

    Congrats to those Police officers who were performing as they should.  They need to be commended.  This type of policing has been lacking in West Bay for far too long.  We West Bayers are beginning to see a marked change.  The reason is left to the imagination.

    However, I am pleading to Chad,as a friend, that he do the right thing and turn himself in to the Police so that West Bay can become the district it once used to be.

      Anon Sun 00:53: How precisely has "society…abandoned not only him but others like him"? What is this thing called "society" that can "abandon" people? Can it also "welcome" people? Such rubbish! People are abandoned by other people, usually their family. And some, like many of our young men in Cayman have no decent male/father image and grow up doing what they like when they like to whomever they like, with no respect for anyone. And they are usually identifiable from a very early age (before 10 years of age). Just ask any teacher in the public school system….XXXXX

    • XXXXX

      when we stop feeling sympathy for the abuser and assist the  police with capturing these people and getting the courts to sentence them and keep them where they belong, then you can ask society to have patience, I raised 3 children with out the aid of a father, who was never there for them when they needed him, always in a bar or out messing around. However my three children today are law abiding citizens, own their own homes. never got in trouble, so dont play the poor pity game that society failed them . They failed them selves.

      Its high time that we stop trying to cover up whats going on here.

          And anyway, most countries complain about immigrants. Probably most of the non-caymanians that comment on CNS are from large countries with similar issues.

      • Anonymous says:

        It’s called sarcasm. The writer was making the ridiculous assumption that this means that all other crimes are committed by Caymanians exclusively so that expats are off the hook. it does not occur to him that individual foreign nationals have been convicted of other serious serious crimes. XXXX

        • Anonymous says:

          Thumbs up to you. Sarcasm it is. However, if the writer is not Caymanian, then he should keep quiet or leave because some of the most hideous crimes here have been committed by expats.

          What’s the big deal about fingerprinting? Something to hide? We get it in the USA. I dare them to complain at the US Immigration. I know Caymanians can’t go to certain other countries and ‘run up dem mouth’ and live to tell another tale!

          If Caymanians want immigrants fingerprinted then that is their right but these days it seems that some expats think they are the ones to call the shots and Caymanians have no rights in their homeland. We need to do as much as possible to keep out criminals because we have our homegrown ones with whom to contend on a daily basis. We do not need to import them.

        • Pit Bull says:

          Your assumption about my assumption was ridiculous!  I never indicated that I thought "all other crimes are committed by Caymanians", but the recent support for illegal fingerprinting is based on ignorance, prejudice and the failure of many to accept that central to Cayman’s crime wave is a hard core of West Bay based Caymanians.

          • Johnny Cake wid a cup of coffey(e) says:

            Totally gets my behind on fire.  He is Caymanian and this is the Cayman Islands.  Surely the two go together – sadly.

            What does not roll off the tongue as easily are: Cayman Islands and Jamaican suspect; CI and British suspect; Cayman Islands and Honduran suspect; CI and….you got the pic I suppose.

            Trust me, I can think of many other more accurate reasons for my country’s crime wave.  I assure you it has nothing to do with "a core of West Bay Caymanians".

            I will let you think what they could be for a while.  Am going to assume you are expat…so we all know then that we are dealing with the perverbial "patent-holder" of brains and common sense.  So you bound to come up with a correct answer.

              If I were living in the Caymans I would not care where the criminal was coming from, but that the criminals acts were being committed. I am a frequent tourist to GC and believe me, I could care less if the criminal is Caymanian or expact, but my decision not to continue to travel there if crime gets much worse will be on the crime.

              I am from the US and do not walk around when a crime is committed asking myself…hmmmm, wonder if it was a Polish decent or a Italian or a Puerto Rican or Irish…etc. etc. etc. The crime was committed.

              It is the crimes that are going to deter tourism. It is the actual crimes that are making people leary of coming to visit. People should be focusing on the fix not the nationality.

              • Anonymous says:

                You are missing the point. If we know who is committing the crimes it will help to us to design the fix.  For example, if some crimes are being committed by persons who are on the Island illegally and because they have no work through desparation commit crimes, then it requires a crackdown on illegal aliens and greater border security. If some crimes are committed by troubled youths from dysfunctional homes here in Cayman then this is a social problem that must be addressed early on. Who the criminals are is not irrelevant.  We know that there is a mix of domestic criminals and imported criminals, we just don’t know what the breakdown is, and anyone who says he does is just speculating. 

          • Anonymous says:

            Ironically you have proved my "assumption" to be correct. The only way that a search for the suspect could have any bearing whatsoever on whether  fingerprinting for those persons coming into the country is to imply that this  means that crimes are being committed only by Caymanians.  It is tantamount to saying "Aha! See – it is Caymanians committing all the crimes while you are looking to detect expat criminals by fingerprinting them". The informed public has reasons to believe that there are persons who are here illegally and involved in the importation of drugs and guns and the commission of crimes.  That is not to say that Caymanians are not also heavily involved in crimes. Your comments are ignorant, inflammatory, gratuitous and consistently reflect prejudice against Caymanians.

        • Anonymous says:

          The thumbs down are all expats who want to make denigrate Caymanians. It shows the prejudice we are up against. What I have stated is indisputable fact – foreign nationals have been convicted of very serious crimes. No amount of thumbs down can change that. Had Anglin been an expat there would have been posts saying that he has not yet been convicted and so no conclusions should be drawn as to his guilt or innocence. Well, whether he is guilty or innocent the fact that he is a Caymanian says nothing at all about the obvious need to secure our borders and more effectively screen people coming in to the country.

      This is a brilliant idea having the RCIPS  driving around all hours and in every area. We the Public while on the road going about our duties always see all sort of stuff that look suspicious such as young men driving around in the West Bay area and other areas late at night with black glasses on their faces. Also you can see strange faces walking around in the days just looking around for example in the Newlands area. Would it be possible to have volanteers from the Public assisting the poor tired Police Officers by  having a group for each area just looking for suspicious people.
