BT man robbed outside home

| 23/05/2016 | 12 Comments

Cayman news Service(CNS): A Bodden Town man was robbed virtually on his doorstep early Sunday morning (22 May) by two armed men. Police said the robbery at a residential address on Hirst Road was reported at about 1:30am, just after the man had arrived home. As he was getting out of his car, he was approached by two men armed with guns. They demanded cash and took the victim’s wallet and other valuables before running away and then leaving in a car.

The suspects both had a dark complexion and were about 5″5′ tall, slim build and wearing black sweatshirts with hoods.  One of the culprits had a moustache.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call George Town CID at 949-4222.  Anonymous tips can be provided via the Miami-based call centre of Crime Stoppers at 800-8477(TIPS).

    Not the first incident in this area. This is three incidents within a month and the same MO’s. Newlands people, stay vigilant and report any suspicious persons/vehicles.

    The truth of the matter is, getting mugged doesnt even make the small print in florida even at gun point. it happens everywhere. if CNS didnt report these small crimes there would be no news to read about…..everywhere was safe 30 yrs ago….because there was no internet, no social media only paper news so people assumed crime didnt happen because they didnt know about it.The guy probably took something that wasnt his and they took it back…he called the police for protection. if your going to rob someone at gun point wouldnt SMB outside the Ritz be a better choice?

      You forget that there is only 55,000 people in this country, less on this island, 2/3 of which are women, children and elderly and it is the size of Texas ranch. So do not compare to Florida. Statistically, reported or not you will lose. People don’t get robbed in FL at their doorsteps or their patios for a reason concluded in your last sentence AND because the changes are great they will be caught right away, not like here. Police does respond in FL, and it does it effectively and efficiently.

    Whilst I generally applaud the RCIPS when they are doing a fine job, I can’t help but wonder if an itsy bitsy more info would be helpful, especially since they are asking ” Anyone with information is encouraged to call George Town CID’ …. so, Dear RCIPS, Bodden Town is a large district.. can you offer some info like street name, type / color of car? This might help with the feedback you are looking for .. I’m just saying 🙂

      Regrettably, having given many reports over the years, our police detectives don’t possess the descriptive vocabulary or mental acuity to draw out the complete recall and timeline of an event in the creation of a credible police report or witness/victim statement. This has to be done in the first few hours, not next day. In some cases they are transcribed with so many errors that the witness/victim info gets conflated with the suspect description. It is unfortunately that bad. Also unfortunate that so much of Cayman’s crime-fighting “effort” is reliant upon eye-witness accounts, the least reliable form of courtroom evidence.

      It does say right in the article “at a residential address on Hirst Road.” No mention is made of the suspects driving a car. If you have personal knowledge of such then you are “encouraged to call George Town CID at 949-4222.”

      Sometimes the victim just doesn’t see the means of escape and so cannot say.

      You should read more closely, the street name is there. Obviously this happened at someone’s residence so they aren’t going to put down their personal address. So pay a little more attention before criticizing … and also, most witnesses aren’t very good at remembering details, especially at gunpoint. Maybe the police have not much to do with how much information is actually available.
