Brac man attacks ex and her new lover

| 17/08/2014

(CNS): The police chief on Cayman Brac has issued a warning to residents there that domestic violence will not be tolerated after a man was arrested Saturday morning following a violent attack on his ex-girlfriend and her new partner. Officers from the Brac police station arrested the 38-year-old man on suspicion of wounding, aggravated burglary and damage to property. Chief inspector Frank Owens said the man was suspected of forcibly entering his former lover’s home on the Bluff and then attacking her and her boyfriend with a knife and a machete. The man fled the scene before police and medics arrived. The couple were taken to the hospital, where they were treated for non-life threatening injuries and released.

Officers then began a broad search of the island and located the suspect a short time later and he was taken into custody. He has since been transported to Grand Cayman, where he remains in police custody ahead of a court appearance on Monday morning.

“Any forms of domestic violence here in the Sister Islands will be treated with zero tolerance and the full force of the law will be utilised," CI Owens said.

A 42-year-old man was arrested on Saturday for making threats to witnesses in connection to the incident. He is currently on police bail.
