Sea front restaurant robbed

| 14/10/2014

(CNS): Two masked men armed with what appeared to be guns made off with a cash register as well as cash and the possessions of both staff and customers at a popular George Town ocean front restaurant Monday. Police say that they received a report of an armed robbery at the Fish Shack on North Church Street in down town George Town just before 11pm. The men entered the premises and demanded cash from a staff member and during the course of the robbery they took the cash register belonging to the business as well as cash and cell phones from employees and a customer. The robbers made off on foot onto Wahoo Close off North Church Street with around $600 in cash.

The suspects were described as having dark complexions. They were said to be tall and slim and both villains were wearing dark coloured clothing, including hoodies and long pants. No shots were fired and no one was injured, an RCIPS spokesperson stated.

Anyone who was in the area at the relevant time and saw or heard anything suspicious is asked to contact the George Town Police Station at 949-4222, the RCIPS tip line at 949-7777 or Crime Stoppers at 800-TIPS (8477).

    You know something, I do not know where the Fish Shack is.  Can someone tell me where it is located so that I can make sense of the article and the comments.

    Again someone know who did it and PLEASE report to the police and I don’t care if it is your husband, boyfriend, brother or lover. You will do a favour to the country by helping police to reduce crime.

    It is really just so sad to see Cayman in a downward spiral of crime…

    I don't condone crime, especially armed robbery, but the signs of these things came many years ago when our teen pregnancy sky rocketed and Gov went public denying gang activity within the High Schools, they closed down a refuge for troubled kids to build that liability called Government building and up until now (10+ years later) there has been nothing done to restore the program. These young men I am sure showed signs of such potential behavior from Primary School days, and like now teachers brush it off as "just kids", the school year ends and a new class starts, that student advances through the education system regardless of capability, with little to no intervention and is then released into society with non-existent skills and education and then expected to find an honest way of making a living! Can someone say backwards society? We first make criminals and then punish them.

    There needs to be harsher penalties for armed robbery, in addition to a minimum of 10 years extra for any crime which may hurt tourism on the island.

    RCIPS is run by the UK you idiot ! So who you think is responsible for this dire and horrendous situation Please don't say mckeeva cause i am sick hearing his name and Alden the puppet simply doesn't count. BVI is now on top of Cayman in the Offshore Centre ratings and Crime is killing this little Island.

      Throw these filthy sub-humans into a cage for the rest of their lives.  I don't care anymore about how dire their situation is.  Violence begets more violence.  They need to be treated like the animals they are. Period!

    And the UDP/PPM/C4C all want to increase the population???

    wow,  more immigrants and usually the cheap labour and they have less money to spend so we'll simply b stuck with more crime, more dependents, less money……..who are these business people coming up with these models?

    We all need more money now so if the little has to be divided even more NO ONE BENEFITS!

    Whay can't all see that, including those expats who want to bring all their people here? Hope it's worth destroying the hand that feeds you.

    I remember visiting that restaurant last June and thinking how wide open it seemed. There are so many unsecured ways to into that place. I even felt uncomfortable in the ladies washroom with low windows.  Restaurants have to be more vigilant as well.  Open air establishments need to determine when to close off certain access points depending on the time of day. The criminals are brazen but managers must help to protect staff and patrons as well.

    Mr. Moxam this is what stifles economic growth. Not increasing the population when crime is rampant, very expensive to live and unemployment. 

    Still waiting to see the 2% reduction in duties at the groceries stores, CUC, hardware stores

    By the descriptions given, these are the same two criminals that have been on a robbing spree for months now. I pray they will soon meet their match, someone that is not afraidto stand up to them and defend themselves. They need a good @$$ whooping that the next time they think about taking something that's not theirs, their head will start to hurt again – in jail! Oh how I pray for you guys to walk into your own trap and get caught. It's coming, it's just a matter of time!

      These morons are willing to risk spending their entire adult lives in prison over $300 each.  Obviously these are crackheads without a plan and probably live right across the road.

    I guess some tourist is going to have a swell story to tell when he gets back home.

     

    "ya, got robbed at gun point in cayman. I thought cayman was gun free??!!" And he will tell two friends, and they will tell two friends and so on and so on.

      Yeah – its the governor and Baines in disguise.  Could shut down Cayman finacial services through legislation, but thought this was more fun.

      My thoughts are – you are a deranged conspiracy theorist full of your own self importance. Seek help immediately. The UK DOES NOT want to take over Cayman – she has enough real problems to deal with – it would hardly be a vote winner as most Brits could not give a stuff about this place nor would they even know where it is.

      12:07 you are accurate! But Caymanians are crabs in a bucket. They can't see past each other to see the bigger picture. Don't let their ignorance stop you from sharing the truth.

      This is the truth and we need to accept it and take heed now before it is too late.

      12:07, I am guessing you are Charles Whittaker, because I do not know anyone else in Cayman who has been hit in the head enough times to make such a stupid comment.

    Crime is legal in Cayman.

      12:06, spot on, apparently if they are caught and pay it back then they are "not guilty".

        Apparently some people still do not understand the Law and how it works.

        Ignorance at it again.

    Once the cruise ship tourists hear about this, and they will, it will be difficult to convince them that Cayman is still a safe place to visit.

      The same ones who leave before 6pm daily? I doubt it given the calibre of the average cruise ship tourist, now stayover tourists who actually spend money, thats another matter…

    We are going to have a tough time re-vitalizing GT and maintaining law and order if the RCIPS are unwilling to regularly patrol neighbouring gangland territory.  What are the terms of the truce?
