(CNS): A Central American fisherman visiting the Cayman Islands lost his pants, phones, ID and cash to a robber early Saturday morning outside a George Town bar. In the bizarre knife-point robbery, the 37-year-old man from Honduras was threatened by the armed, masked mugger at around 12:26am along Boilers road. Police said the fisherman, who has been visiting Cayman for several years, was carrying a substantial amount of local currency as well as lempira cash and a small amount of quarters when the suspect pressed the knife to his stomach and demanded his pants.

Fearing for his life, he removed his pants and handed them, along with the more valuable loot, over to the robber. An RCIPS spokesperson said the suspect then ran off towards Walkers Road with the pants as well as the cash and personal items belonging to the visitor, who was not injured during the incident.

The suspect had light complexion and was of slim build. He was wearing a light blue long jeans pants, grey sleeveless t-shirt, brown sneakers, and he had a white mask covering his face.

Officers were called to the scene and the matter is now under investigation by George Town CID. Anyone with information that could assist the investigators with their investigation is asked to contact DC Ava Parkinson at 949-4222 or Crime Stoppers on 800-8477 (TIPS).

    Track the stolen phones? Even if they’re dead you can still track them.
    Look at CCTV footage near Walkers Road or in the area surrounding the bar?
    Check everyone else’s phones to see who was in the bar area the same time the incident happened?

    If they know how to do these things to charge gang members that shoot each other, I don’t understand why they need help and guidance for pettier crimes.

    Meanwhile the U.S. State Department issues a travel advisory for the Cayman Islands. Due to reports of a Travelers are advised not to wear pants, a.k.a. “Trousers”, especially those bearing any designer labels. However the wearing of plain colored Speedos is strongly advised, flamboyant printed Speedos are not recommended as this may attract other unwanted attention.

    Meringue town is a crazy place. So, just hand over your Lott, and while you’re at it, just give me your pants..ops I mean trousers.

    Have you ever stolen anything? For instance not paying a fair day’s pay, not paying insurance or pension, not giving a fair days work for a fair days pay? Remember stealing comes in many forms and not just from the top echelon or politics. Stealing is stealing, more about the act that determine who is a thief than the amount

    Welcome to the entire world. It is happening everywhere- and while it is horrible that such things are happening here Cayman Is still one of the safest places to visit. For sure someone knew he had the money on him, that was definitely not a coincidence. Whoever the robber is he has slunk to the lowest low.

    This IS disgusting, but not surprising.
    Why make jokes about this crime….a tourist that has been visiting for several years has just been robbed of his pants and his possessions. Will he be back? Will his friends? Will anyone that he has just told about this incident? What about those that just read about this incident?
    These incidents are getting so commonplace that it isn’t easy to overlook.

      More police patrols. On the beach, downtown, along west bay road by the restaurants and shops. If you don’t tap into the tourist money there will be no more to roust money. Why is that so hard to understand.

      Yes he will be back 8.43. Despite this incident he is still safer here than his home, bless him. But he will make sure he never carries that much cash to dodgy bars late at night

      I don’t think they were saying he was on one several year visit – more that he had been returning to the Cayman Islands to visit for several years in a row? 🙂

      Thanks Dr. Seuss. Perhaps if more parents read to their children at night there wouldn’t be so many who aspire to be nothing more than wards of the state or Northward residents.

    Welcome to Cayman, where pure thievery is the norm, from the top echelon of society and politricks, to the very children defrauding you with sponsor-sheet in George Town. SMDH
