(CNS): Police have charged a 30-year-old man from Bodden Town with robbery and drug-related offences after a street mugging in George Town, in which a woman was punched in the early hours of Saturday morning. The robbery happened on Harbour Drive near Elmslie Memorial Church at around 1:15am as two women were near their car in the church parking lot. Two men approached and demanded their valuables, but the women struggled with the robbers and one was punched before the assailants fled with their jewellery and other items.

Just over an hour later police arrested the suspect in Bodden Town. He was later charged with robbery, handling stolen goods and possession of ganja. He is due in Summary Court this morning (30 January.)

    Think of all the crimes that are no longer reported. Many in the community have so little faith in the police they don’t even bother to report muggings and robbery.

    12.52- time for a spelling and grammar lesson too. And don’t talk about cleansing-it is a hideous war crime which no one should wish upon anyone else.

    Bodden Town has become Little Jamaica. It’s hard to find an indigenous Caymanian here anymore. “Man from Bodden Town” which is so common in the media reports these days usually refers to a person of Jamaican origin.
