Police hunt sexual predator

| 30/10/2011

(CNS): Updated — Police have now released a description of the man who sexually assaulted a 49-year-old woman on Saturday at around 10.30am and who may have attempted to abduct an 11-year-old girl earlier in the morning in the Red Bay area. The criminal investigation department is on the hunt for a man described as fair skinned, slim build, small slim face with a straight nose and around 5’ 6” in height. Police said the suspect was aged between 25 and 28 years. The suspect has tattoos on his arms that are dark blue-ish in colour, which appeared to be in the form of letters, and a tattoo on his neck. Officers have not yet named the suspect, who they say spoke with a Caymanian accent and was wearing a grey short sleeved T-shirt, light blue jeans and dark sneakers.

On Saturday morning the female rape victim was reportedly forced into a Red Honda hatchback vehicle and taken to a location on Admiral's Landing, where she was assaulted. CID are still carrying out investigations with the victim. Police have since recovered the vehicle and said efforts are being made to locate the male suspect, who, it is understood, is known to the authorities.

After the first report came in to the police another report was made of the same vehicle approaching a young female in the same area earlier on Saturday, and this is also being investigated.

Meanwhile, officers are also investigating a stabbing which took place around 10.30pm on Friday night during a fight between two men in the vicinity of the Marquee Plaza on Lawrence Boulevard, George Town. During the fight one of the men was stabbed twice with a knife. The victim then ran towards West Bay Road. Police attended the scene but the suspect had already fled.

Contact was made with the victim, a 24-year-old male who was subsequently taken to George Town Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Road blocks and the police helicopter were utilized to try and capture the suspect, but to no avail. During the processing of the scene police recovered a knife and officers are continuing investigations, including the examination of CCTV

Anyone who has any information on the sexual assault is asked to contact Detective Constable McQuade at George Town CID 949-4222.

Anyone who has any information on the stabbing contact Detective Constable Berns also on 949 4222. The public can also call crime Stoppers 800-8477 (TIPS). Police reminded the public to always call 911 in an emergency.

    This description was misleading – when they said :"fair skinned" I read "white'  If the police are going to issue descriptions, it cannot be assumed that all criminals are a shade of brown.  Now that I see the picture I can see that the person I was imagining was far from the reality.

    True Story. We had a Jamaican helper. She was getting rolled over. She had a "boyfriend" who up until that point, she said she had not had sexual relations with. He most likely was "crooning" her. The night before she was do to leave back for Jamaica he raped her. I told her to go to the police. She said they won't do anything becuase I'm leaving, I'm Jamaican.. and if they do I'll have to fly back for the court cases and how will I pay for that when I can only stay as long asI the few days they need me…whenever they need me. How will I pay for that she said. Sad but true, I bet this sort of thing happens a lot. You might have "We Care We Listen We Act" on your car door but this poor girl apparently didn't feel that way.

    Since this crime has reminded us of violence against the female gender and some have mention the two recent missing persons that we still mourn for, do we remember that a female was shot in the face in front of an establishment in George Town with witness all around and what was the outcome of that case in court?

  5. Anony Mous says:

    All in all, a leaf does not fall from the tree. If you want to control the fallen leaf then go after the tree. In quite a few rape cases for at least the past 25 years have been centered around one address so it is not too difficult where to start looking. Sad but true.

    Give an assist to the Commish.

    I agree with no guns for guards or open day of guns for citizens but I see nothing wrong with females having access to pepperspray. Maybe you don't GET it. Maybe you don't understand what it is to be manhandled and taken advantage of and have to live with that drama every day for the rest of your life. XXXX I believe you really need to get a reality check.

      Boy oh boy, it must be very convenient for the Premier to jump up and scream 'it na my reponsibility, crime falls under the Govana'. Too bad flying off on world jonts aren't the Govonors responsibility as well. Then maybe these "leaders" could stay in cayman for a bit and see what is really going on. As oppose to suffering from jetlag.

    Well, I am for one will be carrying and using pepper spray, so if I should ever be so unlucky to be attacked by someone, I have a chance to defend myself.

    I will happily deal with the consequence of carrying pepper spray ilegally in favor of fending off someone who is trying to assault me.

    Certainly the community of the Cayman Islands which is made up of various groups can join together to identify and locate this sexual predator and show concern and compassion for the woman who was assaulted yet has had the courage to come forward.

    One could suspect that this type of sexual attack had been done before and unless caught and punished will be done again.

    If the police know the name, why on God’s green earth wouldn’t they use THAT to describe them. Surely that’s the most precise descriptor of a person to those who know him, and everyone on Cayman is known to a good number of people. More incompetence.

    • Knot S Smart says:

      You are so right!

      Here I am on the lookout for someone with a gray t-shirt, and light blue jeans!

      When the Police have the man's name, and are just making us waste our time, and causing us to be suspicious of everyone we see that has on light blue jean…

      I agree about if they know the name, but better yet, they have the car……did he leave the Island?  Why not release his name, just stated looking for so and so who owns so and so car……this is crazy…then 33 hours LATER!!!! typical RCIPS police work

      May be it is because they are not sure which of those persons with similar names and traits which are known to them for such acts.

    Ok!  Now I just pray and hope that they do find this rapist  or monster soon.  As they stated the Officers has recover the knife.  Did the Officers ran a fingerprint check on the knife?  Why dont they put a drawing description in which the victim give to them in the news to help us get a better description view of the suspect.   I know this suspect could not be very hard to find in this small Island.  It's not too many guys here that have tattoos on their necks, so, to the RCIP your job should be easy!  123 like ABC or do the pubic have to do your job for you all ONCE AGAIN!!!

    • Anon says:

      YES Thats right, the public has to do the job for the RCIP. The description is so good that several of the criminals family and friends must recognise who this is. For heavens sake turn him in.

    We, as a society, need to remember to  treat these women as the victims they are of this heinous crime. 

    As Cayman, we are too quick to judge and condemn victims rather than the perpetrators.  We are quick to look as a victim's past and make assumptions.  I experienceand a sexual attack one year ago and failed to report it to the police as I was afraid and ashamed, both of society and of my attacker .  My attacker was a member of the uniformed protective services and was in a position to strike again.  I kept this information to myself and have maintained  the safety of family but this has come at a great personal cost.

    To the police department and the courts, please  do your utmost to protect the identities of these women and help them to maintain their annonymity and dignity.

    To the courts, famale victims of sexual assaults fear of having their names published in the papers, again for fear of revenge by the attacker's family or the population at large as there is absolutely no form of protection for them. 

    To the lady who was assaulted, please, please, please, know you did nothing wrong and nothing to deserve this.  Your path crossed that of a very sick individual who deserves to be locked away from any further human contact ever again in lifel

    "Spoke with a Caymanian accent"??  No no no. Could never be. None of these crimes that are being committed these days are by Caymanians. They are all being committed by those who got status in 2003.

    Aren't they?

    • Anonymous says:

      Spoke with a Caymanian accent? Well it is conclusive that he is Caymanian then and could not possibly be a status grantee. LOL.

        I know some guys from other Caribbean islands that sound local. This Caymanian guy I know sound Jamaican. Now these days, the accent doesn't necessarily matches the person's nationality.

      What a very crappy thing to say you are so ignorant! I was born in Cayman and spent all my life here but because my parents weren’t "Caymanian" I had to apply for status and did in fact did get it in 2003! But does that make me any lesser of a Caymanian or does that make me a murderer, thief NO it doesn’t!  Crime knows no nationality!!!

      Thats right, the RCIP may not be able to find him if his family is hiding him. Once they get him they need to go after those that are shielding him.

    Yeah having a description broadcasted as soon as one is given makes too much sense for the RCIP.  Look at the incident a few months ago when theyt wanted people to comed forward with info on the 26 year old man from George Town who was wanted for a firearm and evading police.  They had his DOB so im sure they had his name and description as they watched him run away from them but they could not release any info yet they wanted help.

    Rape is Bad! I hope and pray to God that this sexual predator is caught and convicted. When he is convicted he should be made to stand in front of the Court House with a sign around him that says "I am a rapist" so All can see. I wonder how powerful he would fell then? A man who rapes desires power and sexual gratification. The control he excerpts over his victim and the fear he instils is what turns him on. Only a sick person enjoys raping someone else. I want this woman to know she is NOT to blame herself. She did nothing to deserve this sexual assault. I pray for God's healing for her both physically and mentally. I pray that the RCIPS apprehends this sick man and that he is convicted and receives a harsh sentence from the Courts.

    Alot of talk has circulated as to who this individual may be. If it is the case that it is this person we are facing the fact that we have a Serial Rapist on the loose. It brings the next question… Why has this man if him not been sent overseas for proper rehabilitation? Already charged more than once in the past for the same offense and serving lenghty jail time we need to realize it does nothing to deter a predator like this. Serial rapist leads to serial killing as their need for more feeling of power increases. Either get the right help or start chemically castrating sick individuals like this to kill their urges. He will strike again if not properly stopped.

  28. claudia says:

    Oh God, don't tell me we have a predator with a bug in his balls!  CNS, where exactly were these females, at what time, and what were they doing?  A little more information would be helpful. And do you have any word from the investigating officers on the two missing ladies?  Its been months now and the year is almost done. Many women I have met have expressed having fears going out at nights and secluded places. No closure to these cases is just a nightmare!

    • Anony Mous says:

      All three cases you just spoke about occured during the daylight as reported. We do not need exact details as to what these victims were doing at the time these sick criminals attacked them, what we need is the details of these criminals.

    RCIPS please stop looking inward and look at is happening outside. This is not likely to be his first offence wonder if this type of incident has happened before and we weren't made aware of it? 

     

     

    (CNS; A FOI on sexual offences for the year and district would be of interest in light of the missing women)

    Why aren't we allowed pepperspray again?

      Thank PPM for getting the motion passed to allow it. Hopefully the government will start work on crafting the legislation soon now.

      • Anonymous says:

        Of course, this  piece of legislation is urgently needed to protect  women from sick deeds such as this Predator.   His head should be examined,  or else have them tagged like other countries, then they can be tracked like the gangs. I make sure and prepare my mixtures and always carry it in my bag or on my person as my defence.

      IF she was allowed to carry pepper spray, she could have sprayed him and ran!!! XXXX This is a defenseless woman, it could be someone you know!!!!  What right does the commissioner have to tell us we can't defend ourselves (at least with pepper spray).  We have two women missing, no information on their whereabouts, now we have a rapist running around. 

      • Anonymous says:

        These sentiments are all understandably right in this situation…the recognition that these self=defense options are badly needed is no new news.

        The problem is the disconnect in Cayman's society between the RCIPS and the community and part of this problem springs from some of Cayman's elite society who heavily influence which laws are passed and how the RCIPS operates…of course, these are not the type of people who are normally victims of these type of vicious, psychopathic attacks.

        As long as it is not them being attacked, they continue to deny Cayman's potential victims any form of effective way of defending themselves

        There are organizations, the Business and Professional Women's Club being one, a noted martial artist being another, who have focused on self-defense training for women and others in the community but this has never had the support of the RCIPS in their involvement to assist and support these organizations in their efforts…not as a police organization at least.

        A police-led and supported public program funded by donations from the service clubs and churches would go a long way in helping the less financially-affluent to access this training and there are qualified trainers and organizations who would be willing to donate their time and skills for a worthy cause…with minimal compensation.

        How this proposed pepper-spray law will be handled will be a very good indicator as to how this entire self-defense situation in Cayman will proceed; if access and training in its use is not affordable and open to all who qualify, it will prove a useless effort in passing any law allowing its use.

        A can of hair spray or WD40 works just as well. insect spray, even better.

        I've seen video clips of the most recent program to be offered in Cayman, the F.A.S.T. program, which is very good for a short-term adrenaline-driven course but trustable skills need to be reinforced through muscle-memory and a course, if not constantly repeatedly, will be forgotten very quickly….

        And, these victims of sexual assault in Cayman cannot all find $ 100 to attend these courses either….

        They need a whole lot more help than they are currently getting

      Exactly my point in a post on another article…until we are allowed to carry pepperspray we have to ask ourselves…could pepperspray have prevented this?

    My sincere respect goes out to this brave woman for coming forward to report this outragous crime. All to often this crime goes unreported. May this thread be spared the usual humor as I see no jokes about this are appropiate.

    RCIPS needs to realize that no one can help them if we don't even have a description of the assailant.

  33. Kent McTaggart says:

    Excuse my previous post, as it should read the "actual and attempted…" I certainly don't want to minimize the situation that these women have unfortunately become a part of.  My heart bleeds for them and anger pours from my veins at those who deny them the ability to defend themselves!

  34. Kent McTaggart says:

    This attempted sexual assault is the exact reason why we need less than lethal defense, those who don't agree only need to put themselves in the place of the victim, or envision their little girl being assaulted by a sweaty, drunk, loser of a man to come up with a rational answer.

    • XXX says:

      Not all sweaty drunks are rapists and not all rapists are sweaty drunks.  A rapist can be the clean-cut, so called respecatable man next door.  Rapists in Cayman get off too easy.   They need to receive at least 15-25 years for a crime like this.  A person who has suffered a rape lives the rest of their life  in fear and insecurity.

      • Kent McTaggart says:

        I agree with you 100%.  I do what to clear one thing up, I was simply painting a worse case picture for those two leaders who are standing in the way of the residents of this country being able to protect themselves.  the Governor and CoP have the responsiblitiy of this womans pain directly on their hands! 

        • Kent McT says:

          For those who put thumbs down, consider this.  When you deny the ability to defend yourself, those who deny that right are directly to blame, for each and every incident.  Please enlighten me of some other thought process as I simply can not come up with one.
