    My understanding is that Courts Road is very near to Dog City, a well known drug area.

    RCIP, maybe you could drive on Courts road and see if the roads are well lited and if not assist the people who lives in the area by contacting CUC for some assistance.

    Thanking you in advance.

    Young man who was attacked, be careful and hope your feeling better today

      Courts Road is right across from Kirk Supermarket and yes, it is a well lighted area.  Doesn’t matter what area it is.  Drugs etc are all over Cayman in all types of areas  Judge not lest ye be judged.  It didn’t happen becuase of a certain area.

    What makes you think the guy could tell where they are from? Maybe we all look the same to him or given that he was hit in the back of the head from behind likely saw nothing.

    I agree it does not matter where he’s from – just a description to say what he looks like so they can be apprehended would be nice!
