Cayman News Service(CNS): A 52-year-old man was hit in the head by a masked armed robber in the early hours of this morning during a violent street mugging. The victim, who lives in George Town, was robbed of his wallet at 2:00 Wednesday morning in Middle Road in the Walkers Road area of town by four men, all wearing black clothing and white skeleton masks. Police said that one of the robbers was armed with a handgun, and after demanding money from the victim, struck him on the forehead with the handle of the weapon, causing minor injuries.

The robbers took the victim’s wallet containing cash, a debit card and other personal effects before running off towards Maple Road. The gunman was around 5’ 8” and the other masked men were between 5’ 6” and 5’ 8”.

An RCIPS spokesperson said that the robbery is under investigation by detectives from the Criminal Investigation Department at the George Town Polices Station.

    Legalize stop and search of anybody deemed to be suspicious. The only people who would complain about this are criminals….or maybe me if I had a little bit of weed on me at the time. I’m not a criminal though.

    Wonder if these are the men who escape the police in north side with the boat and the compressed ganja.

    Look like they are trying to find ways to survive. RCIP you need to find these men quick. Use up the helicopter.

    The facts are simple and plain, the police have no answers to solving the crime puzzle that has been created by poor parenting which has taught a lack of respect for the rule of law and created an overwhelming sense of entitlement. The current level of criminality is the result of the unintended partnership between disinterested, incompetent policing, an incredible pathetic lack of parenting, and an unfocused education system. No one is positioned to fix the most important issues without credibility in the community, you take a guess who those people are and ask yourselves if they will step up to save Cayman.

    You may be happy about expats leaving and others coming but there are some good ones leaving and some bad ones coming. Be careful,what you wish for.

      Agreed 8.18am – Too many children and others (with no Parenting skills) having children – and mis-interpreting ‘being assertive’ and standing up for oneself as being ‘aggressive’ and that is the attitude they instil into their children-which begets disrespect for authority and violence.
      You only have to look at some ( I repeat, ‘some’) of the schoolkids with ‘attitude’ written all over their faces – they scowl at you whilst walking past….clear what direction some are heading..unfortunately……
      And those are the lucky ones – there’s the others who are mostly left to fend for themselves – growing up with a chip on their shoulders…..little more to be said…
      God bless the remainder who turn out to be productive and worthwhile citizens ! When the do – they are Diamonds !!

    These little ‘Gangsta Wannabees’ would wet their pants if they were confronted by a true Gangster – so it takes 4 of them to do the job of a real Gangster …. they must be watching the wrong TV show to try and copy from, because that’s the nearest they have to becoming what they ‘wannabee’… clue of real life on the streets …..cowards and mommies boys’ – the lot of them.

    Could this be the 4 men from the canoe trying to get their airfare sorted to fly back on Cayman Airways or to purchase gas for their boat they are getting from Snug Harbor?

    Where are the Police? Where is the footage of the CCTV? Both are proved failures in criminal prevention and detection……..proven by the criminality that roams free time and time again.

    • Anonymous says:

      There is no CCTV along Middle and Maple Roads and there’s a side road near the GT Hospital that is perpetually dark where a den of thieves is situated and this is well-known to the police and that’s where the incident happened.

      • Anonymous says:

        Poor statigic placement of CCTV, but if these cameras could function at night and capture more then the appearance of a person then the criminals had to get to this area and should have been captured by placed CCTVs. Of not then they more then likely live in the area. The Police need to do Police work and the department of Internal and External affairs through some real spokesperson needs to explain why the Police fail so often and why the CCTV is not aiding in preventing or investigating criminality……not with a blanket statement that it has aided when the oven gets hit and they feel the need to growl about it

    So no accent in this case? Or did they use sign language?

    • Anonymous says:

      as usual they were jamaicans using caymanian accents…..

      • Anonymous says:

        Sometimes now Jamaicans use Jamaican accents to pose as Caymanians using Jamaican accents because everyone knows from reading the comments on CNS that a crime committed by someone with a Caymanian accent is in almost certainly committed by a Jamaican posing as a Caymanian to hide their identity.

        • Anonymous says:

          Just as some Caymanians like to fake a Jamaican accent for same reason – cuts both ways my dear. And don’t tell me its untrue cos I know nuff Caymanians can fake a Jamaican accent convincingly.

      They were the skeletons of the RCIPS clowns that can’t pilot a 600+hp boat in order to catch a swift “canoe.”

    This country seems to be drifting more and more toward a Grand Theft Auto style living. Hint: to run away just tilt the control stick forward and tap “A” really fast.
