(CNS): Two people were arrested yesterday (Monday 6 April) following separate violent disputes involving weapons. The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS) said the first incident occurred around 5pm in the vicinity of Eclipse Drive, George Town and resulted in the arrest of a 36 year old woman. Later in the night a man was arrested following the assault of another man with a machete in Impulse Close, Bodden Town.

Police responded to the scene of the first incident in George Town and found that a man had sustained a laceration to his face. The man was taken to hospital for treatment and a woman was arrested on suspicion of assault, actual bodily harm. At around 10.15pm the 911 Emergency Communications Centre received a call from a member of the public reporting that he had been attacked by another man who was armed with a machete. Police learnt that the two men, both of whom live on Impulse Close, had got into a dispute which resulted in one of the men receiving an injury from the machete. The suspect was arrested on suspicion of assault, actual bodily harm.

The RCIPS said it urges residents not to resort to violence to settle disputes. Anyone who is involved in violent acts will be dealt with under the full force of the law.

Anyone with information about crime taking place in the Cayman Islands should contact their local police station or Crime Stoppers on 800-8477 (TIPS).

      Impulse Close is almost adjacent to the entrance of Northward Road going towards Bodden Town.  As you pass Northward Road entrance which is on your left going up, after about 100yds on your right, there is a lane called Impulse Close.
