Woman stabbed in neck

| 07/11/2015 | 43 Comments

crime scene generic(CNS): UPDATED: A local woman remains in hospital in a stable condition after being stabbed in the neck early Saturday morning, police said Tuesday, adding that they believe the incident was of a domestic nature and the woman knew her attacker. Officers were called to the Dolphin Centre on Eastern Avenue in George Town at 4:22am on 7 November after a 911 call about a stabbing in the area.

When the police arrived, the victim was able to speak before becoming unconscious. Paramedics treated the woman at the scene before taking her to the Cayman Islands Hospital, where she underwent surgery. Police have still not revealed the age of the victim or any details of where she lives or how she received the serious knife wound.

The incident is under investigation by the Criminal Investigation Department and anyone with information regarding this incident is urged to contact the George Town Police Station at 949-4222 or CrimeStoppers at 800-8477 (TIPS)

    The takeaway from this story is that the authorities suspect this is a domestic violence crime.

    Domestic violence is a grave issue in Cayman, as it is everywhere else in the world.
    Please help spread the word that no one needs to a life as a victim of domestic abuse and that there is a life outside of abuse. The Cayman Islands Crisis Centre provides safe, secure shelter for female victims of domestic violence and their children. The programmes include counselling sessions and assistance transitioning to a life free of violence.

    This woman is in my thoughts and I hope for her full recovery and that she may live her life free from violence from this day forward. I also hope that since the police have stated they suspect that this is a domestic violence crime that the perpetrator will be soon arrested, will be punished to the full extent of the law and that he will also receive proper treatment that is specific to the psychiatric needs of an abuser, so that when he does eventually rejoin society, he will never hurt another person.

    Honduras has now banned Reggaeton & grinding dances.
    If that was also done here I’m sure the crime in Dolphin Plaza and all of Cayman would end immediately.

    The year is 2015 and we are living in the most technologically advanced era in the history of mankind.

    For anyone to immediately jump to prejudgements along racial, religious, or national lines is indicative of immense stupidity and prejudice.

    The evidence is readily available via any of the now almost limitless options of media that shows EVERY group, race, nationality or religion of people has its fair share of criminals, rapists, idiots and assholes.

    By now, those who tend to only see the negative in groups beside their own are making a conscious decision.

    They know themselves.

    – Whodatis

      Who – when it comes to violent crime, the technology you refer to does confirm various fact including that on a per capita basis you are less likely to be killed by a Canadian than certain other nationalities. Just sayin.

      “EVERY group, race, nationality or religion of people has its fair share of criminals, rapists, idiots and assholes.” (inane capitalisation was OP’s own). You certainly help boost the British and Caymanian share of the last two out of the four categories.

    Amazes me that an article about a stabbing generates full blown racist debate. Assumptions are made and conclusions arrived at with little or no evidence to support them, and an unhealthy dose of stupidity. Caymankind!!

      Your response great right up to the last word, when sadly you assume the respondents are Caymanians without any evidence and promptly condemn all Caymanians on that basis, – which may not be racist strictly speaking (but then again, none of the comments referred to race but rather national origin) but is certainly bigoted. Guilty of exactly what you accuse others of – amazing. Or was it irony 😉

        Au contraire mon brave, whilst I would hate to make the mistake you accuse me of, it was precisely my reading of the comments about what clearly seems to be prejudice against ethnic Jamaicans by Caymanians that led me to write same. If I am guilty of making a mistake then the sorrow is mine. But you read them again and tell me differently.

          And you know they are all Caymanian how? And you think using “Caymankind” in a derogatory manner doesn’t apply to all Caymanians, or at least be perceived as such?

            It only applies to a small percentage. A small percentage that are the source of much of the division, festering resentment and entitlement issues. Most people, wherever they come from, are wonderful.

    Hello 7:43
    Firstly, let me say I am an expatriate living, working and breathing in the Cayman Islands. I CHOSE to come here because I wanted a better life. So, I live, work and associate with persons from these islands. I am grateful for this opportunity to live in the Cayman Islands. I can’t think of anywhere else I would want to live. I spoke from the heart (9:18)and so be it that it hit some nerve in your body. Maybe you live in a glass house that is not anywhere near the reality of life in the Cayman Islands. I do not live on Seven Mile Beach or anywhere close just to let you know. I live amongst the Caymanians who many are my friends and have taught me much about the goodness that come from them. If you do not see that the country is in jeopardy of loosing all of what it has to offer which encouraged a lot of us expatriates to come here in the first place, then you need to check yourself. As far I am aware, there are flights leaving everyday out of Cayman. Learn to love the country you live and benefit from. Put that in your pipe and smoke!!!!!!!!1

    Why don’t you man up and grow a pair say what you really mean, don’t leave not so cryptic messages.

    “We have a police force made up of mainly expatriates who come from 3rd World Countries who see their job as nothing but an advancement in their own life”

    Most of the “3rd world” officers you speak of are here because your lame ass Caymanians can’t do a good enough job. Your lame ass Caymanian schools can’t educate the youths and produce illiterate teenagers who fail to amount to anything because of their lame ass Caymanian parents.

    Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

      Anonymous @7:43 honestly I am very sorry for you. You have so much envy and hatred in you that you can’t even face reality. Who are you really cursing? Could you please let us all know what is your definition or understanding of the a Caymanian? I would hate to think that you are in the Cayman Islands and thinking this way. Please tell us what is your future plans…as it relates to being in Cayman and how long you been here. You see…expatriates wants the perks that comes with being Caymanian…but some hate the term being called one. Well here this…if and when you become one…and this goes for those who have already become one..you all are simply cursing yourself as well Bobo. The police force over the years have had some awesome Caymanian offices who have done their time and moved on. The Cayman officers or locals as some expats call us at times, worked closely with expat officers and today they are proud Caymanians and some would go down fighting with us. Why? Because they love us and are genuine. Some of you expats / Caymanian /Status holders or whatever you ought to be referred to would love to know that we (locals for the purpose of this discussion ) are all removed from Cayman simply because you all hate us…just because we have had enough and decide to speak up on these types of issues…But that won’t happen. Our education system like all others is not perfect but we have identified what needs to be done to make it better for our kids and your perhaps. You need to see the calibre of students our system has produced…and continue to produce. It’s people like you that strive on negativity that this country could do without. Anyway…I will leave the rest for another day. But answer me these few questions. Why are you here?… and why here so long? And when are you leaving?. And finally…since our Caymanian officers can’t do the job or not up to the task…and Cayman have to get the expatriate officers to do it..could this be one of the reasons why things are the way they are? Please answer the questions honestly and don’t shy away.

      Caymanian patiently waiting on your response Expatriate.

      You sound ignorant. I will say that we do have “lame ass people” as well. But not the entire population.

      The Caymanians that are smart, and yes there are many, have no interest in being police I guess. So please don’t let your envy of what we have get you all tied up in knots.

      9:18 Some of those same 3rd world children are brought into this country, placed in schools and the system must teach them to read, write and learn the English language. All at taxpayers expense. Provide tutors for them and much more.
      Let them keep their baggage in their own countries and stop cluttering up the infrastructure. We/government provide free education, which is sucked up by those same ones, who flee their countries and nest here.

      First of all, before you start criticizing the Cayman people in their own Country, throwing your negative cristism, or slogans, please do get yourself eduated first and recheck your writing critqe, before passing judgement on others.

      What the hell is “can’t eduate the youths and produce illiterate teenagers?” Get your grammar and pronunciation and vocabulary together first, and stop your ignorance. If you don’t like our beautiful country then what are you doing here in the first place?

      Ummmm, because Eastern Avenue is an expat dominated area of Cayman. Most of the people there are expatriates and the dominant culture is foreign.

        Dolphin Center at Eastern Avenue is a business plaza and there are no apartments or rooming house there. This is a clear case as to why the road for the redevelopment of GT is necessary. Get rid of the low income dwellings send them out of town and into areas away from the tourists where Cayman will not get a bad rap.

    Here we go again! The police will never find out the culprit(s) on their own. We have a police force made up of mainly expatriates who come from 3rd World Countries who see their job as nothing but an advancement in their own life. Too many of them take their job (with the great perks) as nothing but a job. They DO NOT care or see that their responsibility is to serve and protect. Crimes are solved only by the goodness of people who provide information to these mediocre police who then are able to do their job. Cayman get with the programme!!! Hire those who can and KEEP those who are able to do the job!! For instance, encourage and I do mean ENCOURAGE and keep local police officers who can and are able to do their job and who do have the country at heart.

    Cayman we are on the road to an ultimate disaster!! Unfortunately, most of these same police officers and others who live on theses islands who do so for financial gain will be on the next flight out when Cayman crumbles.

    Wake up PPM Government!! and any Government in the future. Cayman is NOT the germ of the world. We are only a spat in the world and NOT the world.

    Lets se what happens when CAYMAN does crumble. God help us ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!

      I agree, but the sad thing is that too many Caymanians had been giving there criminal bobos breaks when they catch them committing crimes, hence the reason for expat officers to be invited here to work, by none other than LAW ABIDING Caymanians who do not trust their own.

        Are these Caymanian officers putting a blind eye to vehicles stopping in the middle of our roads, running around with unlicensed vehicles, driving around with a bought license…never are qualified to drive. We never had had this type of animalistic behaviour untill you came here, we are going to reform our country and get people like you out of here.
