(CNS): A man and a woman were robbed at gunpoint Friday evening at one of Grand Cayman’s favourite beach locations. At around 9:30pm the victims, a local couple, were at Smith Cove along South Church Street when they were confronted by two masked robbers. Police said that the suspects produced a handgun and threatened the couple before taking the man’s cash and the woman’s cell phone. The assailants were described as a stout male with a Caymanian accent and another slim man with a Jamaican accent. Both of the robbers had clothing covering their faces; one suspect was dressed in full black, the other was dressed in full grey. They fled on foot in the direction of The Grand Old House.

No shots were fired and there were no injuries. 

Police are urging anyone that may have been in the area at the time and may have seen something or anyone who has any information to call Georgetown Police Station on 949-4222 or Crime Stoppers at 800-8477 (TIPS)
