Home invader uses spray on victim

| 19/07/2018 | 18 Comments

(CNS): A woman who woke up to find a burglar in her house in the middle of night was reportedly sprayed with an unknown substance by the home invader before he fled with her purse, police have said. The substance turned out to be benign, possibly hairspray, as the victim was not hurt during the incident at her home at Rum Point Drive in North Side. When she awoke, disturbing the burglar, he sprayed her face, grabbed her bag and made his escape through the rear door. He was described as having a brown complexion, short hair and was wearing dark shorts.

    After hurricane Ivan I worked in a press related position in government. We were reporting the percentage of arrests made within a certain period after the hurricane.
    The facts were the majority of arrests were caymanian males ?
    But the department head where I worked only wanted to print how many Jamaicans had been arrested during that period !!!!!!!!? TRUE

    When will I, as a woman, be able to use spray to protect myself?

      well, start with hanging some simple bells on your door knobs and window handles. You need to time to react and grub that pepper spray. When startled, people freeze. So start practicing.

    Hairspray in your eyes is not a ‘benign’ experience and could do premanent damage. Are RCIPS trying to play down the fact this was a potentially serious assault even if no injuries were actually inflicted?
