(CNS): Police are urging anyone with information about a street robbery on Smith Road, George Town, last week to come forward in yet another crime involving firearms. The mugging happened just west of Huldah Avenue at around 2:50am on Thursday, 8 July, when a man who was standing on the roadside just across from Tropical Plaza and the Ultra lounge bar was approached by two masked men, one of whom brandished a gun. The robbers took cash and personal items and fired at least one shot before fleeing the scene. No one was injured.

The matter is currently under investigation, and anyone with any information is asked to contact George Town CID at 949-4222.

Anonymous tips can be provided directly to the RCIPS via the Confidential Tip Line at 949-7777

      And they want to make the USA the boogie man. How about the USA close the borders to Caymanians – then they’d be crying to get in.

        That wouldn’t hurt any caymanians if america closed it’s boarders, I for one don’t have any intentions on traveling to that shithole at anytime for anything because over there if corona don’t kill you then an active shooter will,vaccinated or not, facts.

          Pull your head out your rear and Google murder rate of CI and run that chart against the US. So, your not free and you sure ain’t safe either. Turn your TV off!

      There are thousands of jobs in construction and elsewhere. These punks are perfectly fit and able for these roles.

    Kind of a no brainer to be standing on a street corner at 2:50 a.m. I’m not blaming the victim, but have a care for your own safety. Nothing much good happens here after midnight. Go home and be safe.

    Could I suggest the police refer to all the CCTV footage we have paid millions for?

      Dunce comment.

      CCTV isn’t everywhere, on every square inch of the island.

      Not everything happens in view of a CCTV camera, yuh hear mi!

      I’m sure if there was ‘smoking gun’ CCTV footage, they wouldn’t be seeking witnesses.

        Why is there not working, high quality, and effective CCTV at every intersection in Cayman? Why is there not automated license plate recognition? The technology exists and God knows we have paid for it!

          There is ANPR in several spots on the island. A vehicle can be tracked if the desire to is there. Only senior police officers can sign off on such requests.

      Wish you well on your new endeavours! Many more would love to come but because of bureaucracy. As an old adage says dont jump from the fire into the frying pan. Good luck and chow!

        It’s ciao actually. Chow is food. And it’s ‘from the frying pan into the fire’ not the other way around. Good effort though.
