Burglar hit with machete

| 25/07/2013

(CNS) Updated: Some 24 hours after the police revealed that burglaries were their main priority, it appears that a homeowner has turned on a group of burglars that tried to steal from his home today and injured at least one of them. At about 11:30 this morning, a car with three men inside approached a home in Sandy Ground Road, Savannah. One of the men left the car, broke a window of the house and then entered the building. However, the householder was home and he confronted the suspect and struck him with a machete, police have said the would-be burglar who sustained head injuries ran off but it is not known if he left on foot or re-entered the car, which is believed to be a green Honda Integra.

All three men are said to have dark skin and were wearing ‘construction attire’. It is not clear at this stage just how seriously the suspect was injured, but it is suspected  that he will require medical attention for his wounds. Police also said that the man's clothing would also be heavily blood-stained.

Anyone who was in the area at the relevant time and saw the green Honda or the suspect approaching or leaving the house is asked to contact Bodden Town CID.

The public are also asked to contact the police if they are aware of a colleague, friend or family member who has sustained injuries consistent with being hit by a machete.

Information can be passed to Bodden Town police station 947-2220, the RCIPS tip-line 949-7777, or Crime Stoppers on  800-8477 (TIPS).

Releasing the crime statistics for the first six months of 2013 yesterday, the RCIPS had pointed to the worrying increase in day time burglaries and break-ins plaguing the island and stated that they were increasing patrols and proactive policing.

    Home Owner Your A Hero!!


    Am glad in a sense it happen but @ the end of the day the burglar is human.

    But it's time a stop is put to all the thieves/burglar's, we the peeps who work hard for what we have and @ the end of the day of those animals to come in our homes and repy what we sow.

    I don't think so, I can grantanee you if I ever catches/find someone in my home that shouldn't be there it's them same thing will take place. If not worst, the head rolling around the place.

    Police it's time you all get off your asses and work for your salary, do more potroling and stop wasting Government gas doing personal runs.

    These li'l boys I call them are out of order and know when to do things, instead of them been ahead of you the police you all be ahead of them long time. WAKE UP!!

    I don't believe that these burglars were hungry and out of work.  If they were ALL wearing construction outfits, they were employed and STILL up to no good.  We should make the homeowner a hero… put him on TV and give him a medal.

      …if they were all wearing construction outfits… Then decided that on their lunch break should burglarize a house…then the other two left him on foot because they would be late going back to work.   Maybe burglarizing is their part-time jobs,  while still clocking at the full -time job,  it's just 11:30 in broad daylight!    Brilliant!    NOT!

    Maybe, the hardware stores will have to stock up on machetes.

    • Where do I start... says:

      OK, I get the sentiment, but you REALLY need to learn some geopolitical reality.  for example, Amputations as punishment can happen in Sharia-controlled areas of Nigeria, in Saudi Arabia and in Iran.  All of those places are brutal and backward and governed by an extremist form of Isalm (not dissimilar from fundamentalist Christians).  These states are viewed as evil by the west, even though we still do business to get the oil out of Saudi Arabia.  On the OTHER hand, Turkey is a strongly democratic, secular, unitary, constitutional republic with a fiunctioning judiciary and an embracing of the rule of law.  It is in negotiations with the EU for full membership and has been an associate member of the European Economic Community since 1963.  It is completelywesternized, right down to the McDonalds on the corners.  Women vote in Turkey and have every right and freedom enjoyed by men, unlike the earlier-mentioned areas.  It is very different from the lands of the extremists.  Turkey is also a member of NATO and stands ready to fight to defend us, as we do them.  They have stood and died beside us in Afganistan and in many many other places.  They host the US Air Force at and share with them the Incirlik Air Base in sourthern Turkey, where one of the main stockpiles of our nuclear weapons in the region is maintained.  In short, they are amongst our most trusted allies and friends and they deserve so much better than to be confused with the likes of those who mutilate their citizens for petty crimes.

        Turkey represses its Kurdish minority; is suffering from social unrest due to its government's reactionary stance on several illiberal issues including restriction of alcohol; and refuses even to acknowledge, let alone offer reparations for, the genocide of its Armenian population exactly 100 years ago. There is no way it'll be admitted to the EU in the foreseeable future, and nor should it be if it continues its current drift towards reaction. But you're right, Where Do I Start: it doesn't cut off its citizens' hands. Not yet.

        You conveniently "forgot" to mention that Turkey also invaded Cyprus in 1974 killing thousands of civilians. Turkey is also still an occupying force in the northern part of Cyprus.  Whether or not they chop off people's hands they will not be admitted to the EU until they stop occupying another EU member state (Republic of Cyprus).

    Not having a job is not an excuse for braking into someones home or stealing anything for that matter.  Unfotunatly human nature has people take the easiest road and right now in Cayman theiving is the easy road..if you get caught go to court and get a slap on the wrist..learn what you did wrong the last time you got caught and keep going.  Your mindset is why things are only going to get worse…there is NO EXCUSE.

    The guy smashed a window to get in, think of the mind set of the owner…violence against his property…could it be he or his family that suffer next?? Are they armed? According to you, he should have waited until the guy poked a gun or knife in his face before responding. Whilst many on here will not like the reference, an Englishman's home is his castle and anyone who threaten or enters that castle without permission is the offender and aggressor, not the owner. In most countries, replace "Englishman" with any nationality you want.

    • PLAIN TALK says:

      I base my reasoning off the story line:  "the householder was home and he confronted the suspect and struck him with a machete, police have said the would-be burglar who sustained head injuries ran off "…. From the story line we clearly see that the homeowner knew their was a person in his house before "he confronted" or else why did he go and look for a machete. That means he had enough time to review his options and what sort of force he was to use.  The homeowner could be charge for an offense!

        If it is anything you prove here it is that there are some people in this world who are far more dangerous that a theif, killer or any other criminal.

        The FACT is, the scum with the chop head did not belong there. Fact, the scum with the chop head had no good intentions. FACT, the scum with the chop head was not a nice person because if he was his ass would not of been doing what he got caught doing.

        FACT, the home owner would have been a FOOL to stop then call the police, hoping that they would have magically appear out of thin air and arrest this scum bag!!! FACT, the home owner was in HIS house, minding HIS business. FACT, this is the new Cayman, where criminals have cart blanch because of old laws that no longer are relevant to the times we now try to survive in as law abiding citizens.

        While I do pray that this does not ever happen to anyone, perhaps if it happens to you, I hope you go through all the legal scenarios in your head first before taking action to defend you and yours!!!

        Let's see how that works for you. I predict you will be dead and the criminal will leave with a shopping cart full of bounty!

        The mere fact the homeowner saw three guys was reason enough to chop him. Weapons or not, three criminals versus one homeowner is justification for the chop.

    EXCESSIVE USE OF FORCE:  Think of it. The homeowner strikes the man with a machette that causes him injury that could require serious medical attention. Did the homeowner had to confront the burglar with a machette???  Was his life in danger and he had no other choice but to use a weapon to defend himself???  What if the burglar choose not to attend the hospital and dies from his injury???  Was the burglar armed and threatened to take the man's life???  I know many here will side with this homeowner, but using deadly force to defend property (is not like defending your own life); rather it is excessive use of force, and that could not be good for the homeowner if this man should die of his injuries.

      Dear PLAIN TALK: I have no idea who you are but let me assure and re-assure you that this intruder deserved what he got. The only regret I have is that he wasntchopped more. This so called intruder who is nothing more than a punk, has entered a PRIVATE home with no good intentions. Were you the driver of the car that pulled up? Or were you the one that was on the receiving end of the machete? No matter who you are, your comments are pathetic. It is time that punks like this one, face the wrath of a weapon. I can assure you, that ANYONE who enters my home in this manner, WILL BE CHOPPED or SHOT! And I will endeavor to chop him in such a manner to render him unable to walk so that he can be transported to the hopsital under Police guard. So PLAIN TALK, like the punk that was chopped- you too are a disgrace to humanity!!! The homeowner should be given a commendation and the HIGHEST award that this country offers.

    • acquo si acqui says:

      If the burglar had not purposely and knowingly decided to   be in that time and place with no good intentions at all ,  otherwise why would he be breaking a window of a house not his own, he would not have ended with a heavily blooded shirt,  would he?

      Do you imagine the homeowner to just give him a pat on the hand and say,  bad dog, bad dog?

      or maybe just so he wouldn't be accused of using excessive force to have just  have a spatula on hand and tap his head?

      good thing the homeowner did not have a gun handy, or the burglar maybe helped out of the house, instead of walking away.

      This mightn't pass the Court's 'smell test'. If you happen to have a comon household item, like a machette or a baseball bat, handy you're likely to not get charged. (Especially if you only hit them once and they run off. No chasing them down the street shouting "I'll kill you" then hitting them in the back.) If you go to the store and buy a 'pistol' for defence and then discharge it at someone they're going to feel thats too 'premeditated' and 'disproportionate'. (Unless they have a gun, in which case you don't want to get in to a flare-vs-bullet gunfight anyway.) So stick with somethign 'reasonable'. Like a nice frying pan.

    Now, can it be possible that DNA is on the machete?! And if so, did the RCIP take it to their lab?!!! I am willing to bet this case, although made a bit easier by our latest National Hero, will remain unsolved…hmmmm wonder why?

    This is excellent news. Well done the guy who fought back. I have a machete in my house which is razor sharp, I keep it only for home protection nothing else. I also have wasp and hornet spray that will blind them at 25 feet. Don't come in my house and you have nothing to fear.

    Many years ago, a George Town guy murdered an old man in a jewellery shop. He was turned in by his (ashamed) family and I believe he is still in Northward. Since then, I sense that families don't do this which is a shame because many people in Cayman know EXACTLY what's going on but don't say anything because of "family" or "he my baby daddy".

    Let's see if the victim's family will blame the homeowner like the last incident, which forced a homeowner to leave the island.

    What a brazen three.  At 11.30 am they are trying a thing!  Good job homeowner, I would've done the same as you did.  Stand your ground, defend yourself, too bad the machete wasn't sharp enough, to do the real job.

    Way to go that man, you deserve a medal. Just hope RCIPS retains the DNA evidence from the blood on the machete without contaminating it this time.

    This is what I like to hear! If the RCIPS isn't doing anything to deter these criminals from breaking in and robbing hard working citizens, the citizens have to defend their property. What will become a local outrage is if this brave man gets charged for wounding with the intent to cause grevious bodily harm or something along those lines. Because honestly, the police would have to be some hypocrites to expect Cayman to be filled with a bunch of cowards who do run to the police instead of defend themselves when their life and property is in danger. I see some major changes in Cayman's near future, lets hope the law makers are wise.

    Welcome to the first of many incidents….society has a way of fixing some of the problems that plaque it. There has to be a point when the people just have to stand up and say "I am not going to take it anymore". I must the police have been trying to control this issue but times are hard and more and more people will result to crime to feed their families and themselves, whether it be stealing conch when conch season is closed or smash and grabs at jewelry stores. Robber be warned one of these days you will run into the wrong house expecting to take something and the home owner may just take something away from you.

    Hope that teaches them low life pests a lesson.  Why in the hell don't they go do some fishing and grow some cassava.  Our old folk did that in their day and they were poorer than us and they survived, enjoyed life and had some integrity.

    Please tell us that the piece of shit was lying on the ground with a couple of  slugs in the head! These lazy ass bums has to be taught that people aren't going to let their homes and their piece of mind be invaded anymore!

    Take pictures of any construction guys working near your place, they are keeping track of when you leave and go and then selling that information for a few points. Put a video cam motion detector in your car near your home that transfers the video to some secure location wirelessly,. You will be surprised of how many people, even colleagues, who are taking a peek into your car during the dayand especially during the nights. Have the videos ready for the police when something happens.

      I agree with this comment. We have to be more aware of people who have access to our homes and able to monitor our neighbourhood. I see a few labourers doing a bit on the side after normal hours in my neighbourhood. This activity has been going on for sometime now. Maybe the RCIPS should pay an unexpected visit to them.

    This is Cayman, let me predict the future as it relates to what will happen to the man who stood up to these scum bags. The RCIP will be tempted to charge him with causing gb harm to one of the bastards.

    A few years ago, they wanted to charge the gentleman who shot and killed another criminal that was breaking into his house, but because of the backlash that they would have gotten from the public they didn't.

    Good for this man!! this will possibly be the only time that the police will actually catch one of these low life bottom feeders.
