Woman faces home intruder on Walkers Road

| 15/10/2009

(CNS): A man dressed in black, with his face covered, entered a property on Fountain Court, Walkers Road, last night where a young woman was home alone, police have said. While the RCIPS has described the incident as a burglary, they report that nothing was stolen but that the intruder and the victim “engaged in a short struggle”, after which the suspect fled the scene, direction unknown. CNS has asked if the struggle was initiated by the suspect or the victim and is waiting for a response.

The RCIPS report that on 14 October at approximately 7:30pm the 911 Emergency Communications Centre received a call from a woman stating that her friend had just been the victim of a burglary. The victim apparently did not require medical attention. Officers from the Criminal Investigation Department continue their investigations.

Anyone who was in the Walkers Road area around this time and may have seen this man who was clad in full black is asked to contact George Town Police Station CID on 949-222 or they can leave information on an anonymous voicemail service by calling 949-7777 or they can call Crime Stoppers on 800-8477 (TIPS). All persons calling Crime Stoppers remain anonymous, and are eligible for a reward of up to $1000, should their information lead to an arrest or recovery of property/drugs.

    How did the burglar get in? Was it through an open door/window? Through the front door, back door?

    I lived at Fountain Court, it is a wonderful complex, but this Island has become a cesspoot, with criminals running the show. 7:30 at night home invasion robberies targeting a single female? Are you kidding me.  This was no robbery.  Will it be counted as just another ‘aquisitive crime’ and brushed under the rug as a so many others have been?

    Although I am very worried that with all of the economy constricted measures we have coming with the new taxes, and more persons out of work we will only see an greater number of brazen crimes, this was a much more violent act.  While we are trading quality of life with the inequitable "fees" so that the few at the top can stay rich – for the short term, this type of crime suggests a much greater depravity, and deserves not to be brushed aside. 

    I read a number of posts lambasting Caymanians for not utilizing Crime Stoppers.  But if I understand the situation, the police already know who many of the criminals are, they just can’t convict them. If I call Crime Stoppers, yet do not come forward, the problem still exists.  We need to take back the night.  We need to be brave.  BUT, we also need to know that we will be protected to some degree. 

    You might think this isn’t going to happen in your yard, but if you don’t take immediate and forceful action it will.

    Could CNS find out if the intruder forced his way into the apartment or was it left unlocked?

    Thank you

      Does it matter if the doors were locked or unlocked? No one has the right to intrude into someone’s home.Good that the lady fought the coward off…maybe we should all arm ourselves with metal / wood baseball bats and broke a couple of theirbones or bash their brains out. Dont think we would spend much time in Fairbanks anyway..dont we have "Self Defense" in our courts?

      • Anonymous says:

        Yes it matters because it helps people to determine whether it is worth getting a security system.

        • MDU says:

          Obviously it is more than worth it to get a home security system..but then again..with the recent crime sprees…am sure these criminals have a way of bypassing them! Scary thought!!

         That’s exactly how a lot of our countries handle their criminals when questioning of the local law enforcement occurs.. It is only a matter of time before it starts happening here. To answer your question, self-defense is applicable only at the time of the offense… i.e. if someone attempts to rob your home & you fatally wound them, it is self defense. However, if at a later date (even the next day) you attack the perp, it is no longer considered self-defense in court regardless of the perp’s offense (e.g. he could’ve raped your mother, sister, wife, dog.. doesn’t matter).

    I know you won’t have it all but you must know more than "he was a man in black"

    You get some DNA or fibres from under the victim’s fingernails? Did you even check?

      Maybe it’s the victims fault. Let’s yell at her for not recording every single detail whilst in the middle of fending off a criminal.

    How can you be a victim of burglary if nothing was stolen?

    Good for the girl; nice to see someone with the guts to scare off these cowardly attackers!!

      Burglary is defined slightly differently according to various jurisdictions but generally it encompasses:

      1) a tresspass or breaking and entering,


      2) commission of a theft or intention to commit a theft, OR commission or intent to commit another felony.

      Thus a drunken person who wanders into the wrong apartment and falls asleep on the couch may be guilty of a trespass but is not guilty of burglary if he had no intent to steal or commit another crime.

      Intent to steal is sufficient. No actual theft need occur. Someone who breaks in with the intention to steal but is then scared off by a guard dog is still guilty of burglary.

      Similarly someone who breaks in to steal a company’s daily cash receipts is still guilty of burglary even if the manager dropped all the cash in the bank’s night depository  and thus there was no cash in the premises. It is no defence that it was impossible to have accomplished the intended theft.

     "Face Covered"….what was his face covered with??? Hair, sunscreen, a bandana, mask???

    "Dressed in black"   Was he wearing a black sweatshirt, tshirt, pants, jeans, black shoes? 

    The RCIPS wondes why no one helps them, so maybe they should start by actually giving a good description, THEN maybe people would help.
