Man bound by masked burglars

| 23/07/2021 | 52 Comments

(CNS): A man awoke around 1:15am on Friday to find three masked men in his home in Coemer Drive, George Town. The burglars bound the man’s hands and demanded personal items, the police said. But the victim struggled with the home invaders and called for help, and another resident at the house who heard the commotion and called 911. The burglars fled with some personal items before the police arrived on the scene in the Windsor Park area. However, no one was hurt and police gave no indication that the burglars were armed.

The culprits were described as being between 5’7″ and 5’8″, with one being described as slim and the others of medium build.

The aggravated burglary is now under investigation and anyone with information is asked to contact George Town CID at 949-4222.

    I wonder what new security technology one of the security companies is promoting this week. Perhaps a personal alarm tracking system. Seems that one of the companies always has the tech ready when crime waves hit.

    When someone kills one of these useless criminals to protect their family, maybe that’ll send a message! In any case, it’ll at least prevent that criminal from reoffending.

    Where tf is the RCIPS? This goes back to lazy cops doing nothing but collecting a check. Hey RCIPS, get into the neighborhoods and stop this before it happens. You know who the players are, do something before Cayman become mini Jamaica!

    This happened Thursday night, okay technically Friday morning. Those of us who know the victims were shocked at the lack of coverage of this heinous crime. And the glossing over of violent crime in Cayman is very worrisome. PIf you did not know about this event, you would be unlikely to see it in your feed. It is hidden, buried, and not addressed. Why?

  5. Sick of it says:

    So disgusting. I hope we can purge these as$holes from our island. People know these cowards, to sad they cannot come forward.

    I read the details on the RCIPS website, it apparently was Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone. Thanks RCIPS for the so-called info on the assailants. Very helpfully.

      I was out of a job and penniless in 2009. With flipping children to support. I did not resort to terrorizing innocent people. Wtf are you thinking? There is NO excuse for this type of behavior. We should have zero tolerance for it and draconian penalties. How dare they blight my Island.

      How can you and your kind describe something you know nothing of? Explain.

      The Government are the blame. Every law made is made to ease up, help the criminals, never to help the good law abiding people. Need corporal punishment, hard life sentences, meaning the criminal gets out of jail only when he dies .

    This kind of stuff makes me very angry. One, we shouldn’t have to spend $2500 on home security measures, but if we have to we do.

    Two, there are frequently apologists that claim these scum are hapless products of our dour economy.

    Three, if any person is willing to invade the home of another person, they deserve whatever violent force comes to them. I’m glad the victim wasn’t harmed. I’m glad the scum weren’t harmed, I guess, but if they’d have been pitched out a three-storey window to fall to their deaths, I would just nod my head in agreement.

    Life is tough for a lot of people. This kind of shyte is not justified in any way. Probably drug users, who knows or cares. People who act in this way deserve anything that comes to them. There was NEVER any kind of this crap when I was growing up. If someone was so downtrodden that they couldn’t pay their bills, there was help for them among the community. NOBODY I know would have EVER resorted to home invasion.

        Try Camana Bay on a Friday night to see disgusting behavior.

        • Anonymous says:

          9:26am Agree! After my last visit there on a Friday night, I decided that wasn’t happening again. Camana Bay needs to enforce a no loitering rule. Decent, paying customers don’t want to be forced to squeeze through walkways lined by degenerates that harass you as you go by.

      Cayman is for the criminals. You can’t defend yourself because either the law will side with the burglar if you maim him or bring some stupid “reasonable force” garbage suit against you, or the criminals just come back for you the next time and attempt to kill you like they did previously to someone here (can’t remember the name of the person this happened to)

      What message does this send to people? Law abiding citizens will more than likely flee when they are punished for protecting themselves. Then we will see how fast those in their ivory towers put in place rushed solutions and beg those with money to stay and give them another chance.

      I give this island 4-5 years before its too far gone to be saved without absolute draconic measure. I’m working to have the mobility needed to protect myself and my family, since the government has taken the right away from me but refuses to actually do what’s needed. Typical of most governments though.

      • Beaumont Zodecloun says:

        I hear you. I don’t understand “excessive force” where someone has broken into my home. Based on other reported home invasions, I have to assume they have a gun and intend harm to my family. I have a right to defend my family and our property.

        If I lock my doors and windows at night and use other security measures, that ensures that a B&E on my house was not accidental and that the criminal broke in with clear intent. I should not have to guess their intentions after that. To me, they have given up all their rights they had before crossing my threshold.

        Somebody — even a stranger — knocks on the door and asks to be fed, I will feed them. I’ve never had a stranger do that, but I’d like to think I’d do the same (assuming it wasn’t late at night). That is one thing. To break in is quite another.

          The minute you enter my home uninvited you are suspect. Break in at 1am with a mask, and tie me up? Nope I will bludgeon your ass to protect my family. Send me to Northward, I really don’t care. I will do my best to end your useless life.

          • Beaumont Zodecloun says:

            Exactly right.

            We have a right to be angry about this kind of thing. It is contrary to our health and safety. The criminals should be rooted out with every means available.

            People on CNS are fond of saying “everybody knows who they are” or similar tripe. I don’t know. I have never known. If I knew, I’d do something about it, and I’d stay on the RCIPS until some changes were made.

            I think that kind of information is fairly rare for the RCIPS. They would love us to step up and share our “known” information.

            6;55 pm. I agree with you, someone breaks inn your house you have the right to defend yourself and family, and killing the criminal should always be justified as self defense. And not excessive force of self defencse bull shit, like it happened here before. Cayman should marched when that happened

            • Anonymous says:

              Exactly! If someone breaks in, it is to cause harm/loss and they should have to take whatever licks they get from the homeowners! There should be no such thing as excessive force when it comes to protecting your family in your own damn home! No one is breaking in to bring you a million dollar check!

    • Anon says:

      Should you break into my home – you are now my property so in other words if you don’t have the upperhand when you get inside don’t expect to come out in one piece. People need to start getting serious with these criminals there are way too many charities on this island for someone to be doing this. The excuse of no job is played out and tired. I will agree however that the borders being shut has done more harm than good for those in certain sectors that will find it difficult to adjust to another way of life. This needs to be fixed ASAP – home invasions in such manner should never be happening on island this small.

        Manhattan is <half the size of Cayman,Wtf does size have to do with it?

        • Anonymous says:

          Ummm… It’s a different country? A whole different country.

          You cannot compare Cayman with another country. Maybe another Caribbean country, but you cannot compare Cayman with a country like the United States. Lol
          May as well compare it with Sicily?

            Aruba and St Vincent are about the same size as Cayman with similar crime rates. I can list several islands smaller than Cayman that have waaay higher crime rates, as well as larger islands with lower crime rates so saying that crime like this shouldn’t happen on an island this small just doesn’t line up with observable reality and human nature. There is a direct relationship between crime rates and population density. Pop density being one of the major determining factors, The size of the island is damn near irrelevant.

            In other words, the amount of people found in one square mile informs crime not how many square miles there are.

            Generally speaking per capita crime rates increase as population density increases up until a certain point then it starts to decrease again for different reasons. The geographic size of the jurisdictions really have little to do with it.

            That’s my point. The size of the island is irrelevant. But I’m stupid. Ok carry on genius.

        This is such a dumb argument. The same can be said for alcohol – in fact – alcohol is a stronger depressant. Many people can function perfectly fine with cannabis.

        1. These tiefs are not stealing to fund their weed smoking.

        2. Did you know that you can actually grow it yourself? For free?

        3. Meth/crack/crank/cocaine – Cannot grow for free. Must burgle your neighbors to fund this kind of drug use. (probably for booze too)

        Got it now dingdong?
