(CNS): Police are on the hunt for three armed robbers who made off with an undisclosed amount of cash Friday night after firing two shots during a hold-up in Prospect. No one was injured during the stick-up at De Kitchen, on Shamrock Road, just before 11.30pm on 23 October. An RCIPS spokesperson said that just before closing time, three masked men entered the restaurant demanding cash. One of the robbers was armed with a small pistol while the other two carried machetes.
The gunman fired two shots during the hold-up, one outside the building and the other shot was fired inside the kitchen area where the meals are prepared. The armed, masked men then fled the direction of Mahogany Way with cash in both US and local currency, which was stolen during the late night robbery.
Police said the suspect with the pistol was approximately 5’10” with a fair complexion. The other two suspects who brandished the machetes during the heist had light complexion and were approximately 5’2”, one was of slim build and the other one a little fatter. All three spoke with what was described as a Caymanian accent.
