Robbers mug local bus driver for fares

| 11/07/2013

(CNS): A driver was robbed of a small sum of cash on Wednesday eveningby two passengers who wanted to be taken to Rock Hole. The report was made to the RCIPS at 8:07pm last night (10 July) and the robbery took place at the Bus Depot in Edward Street, George Town. The bus driver told police officers that he had collected two men from Coe Wood Beach in Bodden Town, but when the bus reached the depot, the men asked to be taken to the Rock Hole area. When the driver refused, one of the robbers pushed an unknown object against his neck and demanded his cash. The men made off with a small amount of money from inside the vehicle and were pursued by people at the scene. However, they escaped on foot in the Mary Street area of the capital.

An extensive search was conducted involving armed officers, the K9 Unit, Marine Unit, and uniform officers but the subjects were not located. No shots were fired and no one was injured in the incident.

Police released a description of the two men, who both spoke with a Caymanian accent.
One man was around 5'3" tall, 23-25 years of age, slim built, side burns with a well-kept beard and haircut, brown complexion, wearing a white t-Shirt with light blue 3/4 jeans. The second man was said to be about 5'6", in his early 30's, with a slim build and wearing a black T-shirt.

Police are appealing to anyone who was in the Coe Wood Beach area of Bodden Town around 7:30pm on 10 July or at the bus depot at around 8:05pm to contact Detective Constable Bowen at the George Town Police Station at 949-4222, or if you wish to remain anonymous please call Crime Stoppers at 800-8477(Tips).

    Was it a West Bay Caymanian accent or an East End Caymanian accent (or maybe a George Town Caymanian accent)?

      Exactly! Interesting how is it always a "Caymanian" accent when those people are in fact Xenophobic and Ethnocentric and do not even know what that a Caymanian accent sounds like.

      Coe Wood Beach is the GARBAGE collection area.  Every drug head is posted at the restrooms using and trading.  Setup cameras and get the garbage collected.

      The BT Police should pay more attention to that area.  I live in BT and if I can see what is happening there, the Royal Police should be more vigilant and catch or arrest the loiterers.

        I truly don’t think the country as a whole has the will or desire to deter this behavior.

      It was an East End accent, but one that seemed to come from the west side of East End with a lilt that indicated some teenage years in West Bay and perhaps spending some time as a child being looked after by a George Town based grandparent who was born on the Brac.
