(CNS): A woman walking along Eastern Avenue at about 4:30am Monday was attacked by an unknown assailant who was riding a bicycle, police have said. The woman was south of Saturn Close when she passed a stranger on a bicycle, who then approached her from behind, grabbed her and reached down her pants. A struggle ensued and the woman was pushed to the ground and received minor injuries to her face. The suspect fled the location. He is described as being a tall black man between 20 and 30, with curly hair. He was wearing a blue shirt and brown work boots.

    Hope the perpetrator is caught. Should be easy to locate if he was only wearing a shirt and boots. That must have been painful on the bicycle.

    I am really curious to what kind of guy thinks this kind of approach would work, or even be a good idea. It’s almost as bad as watching “certain types” slow down for joggers and asking if they want a ride.

    I feel like pointing out the obvious to them. “does that approach EVER work?!”. if the answer is no, maybe you should just stop.

      Hey! This statement is ignorant! Rape is not about a guy getting his rocks off. And he sure isn’t looking for a gf. OMG this is so stupid…

    And I don’t want to hear anyone say women shouldn’t be out at that time. Women should be able to go out at any time without the fear of being assaulted. How about teaching our MEN to keep their hands to themselves??

    Years ago when this island was inhabited by indigenous Caymanians not the (deleted highly offensive term) we have today calling themselves Caymanians, we could walk the streets any time and did not have to worry about being assaulted.
    That was never a part of our culture or DNA. Then came 2003 and massive status grants were traded for votes. McKeeva opened our doors to our neighbor and our island is no longer the safe peaceful paradise we use to boast about. The UDP and PPM sold us out. Deal with the truth!!!

    CNS: Next time you use that highly offensive term, I’ll just delete the whole comment.

      I don’t know what offensive term was used but it is a joke that we have people who proudly differentiate between the different “types” of Caymanians. It is a status and if it makes you feel better to call yourself “multi-generational” then fill your boots.

      However there clearly is no one on these little specs in the sea that could reasonably be called “indigenous”. The first lasting permanent settlements here did not happen until the 1730s and not all of the people who like to feel they are more equal than other Caymanians can trace their roots back that far.

      I’m driftwood but old driftwood so I can remember that well before the status grants the crime report would use the phrase that a woman was “attacked” in her home or on the road.

      Also please don’t pretend that there are not huge issues with both physical and sexual abuse in the community that unfortunately would seem to be very much in the culture or DNA as you put it.

      You voted for UDP and PPM pus others along the way so maybe take a look in the mirror and stop blaming others.

        There are definitely different types of Caymanians. There are even black ones who don’t like the (highly offensive comment)’s.

      Aside from the highly offensive language, cannot help but agree with the 9.52 post.

      SO TRUE! Hands down. I agree and we who are from here for real also agree.

      Yup, back then we didn’t even have to leave home to be sexually assaulted!

      So let me understand this. Only when the door was opened did crime begin to happen in Cayman? So everything was perfect? All the indigenous were all so perfect? No incest, no crime, just a happy paradise. By the way where did some of your grand parents and great grand parents come from again or they not counted as indigenous? Every indigenous person here came from somewhere and guess where most of them came from, white and British though they may have been. Of course, the slaves came from Africa. I wonder where many of your elevated politicians, educators, business men where their grand-parents, great grant parents were from? Remember you just celebrated the life of the oldest person in Cayman who died. Where was he from, and what fruits has he borne that are now celebrated descendants in the island? You have to stop this hateful and unproductive blaming of your problems on your ancestors. Get to the true roots of the social ills. But I guess a people who celebrate pirates but not slaves, ain’t got no evil blood flowing through them. Know your true history and embrace it. There is evil in every culture. There are more Jamaicans that contribute to Cayman than commit crime. Stop the ignorance! Well what am I saying hard to banish jealousy and bad-mind. Never see a people so hateful towards their family. Hahaaaaa!

      HAHAHAHAHAHAHA 9:53am You forgot the /s (denotes sarcasm)

      All the crime I experienced was well before 2003! And all of the crime I have experienced in the last 30 years has been from Caymanians, not Jamaicans.. (Yes I know the difference)

      Hmmmm incest and bestiality that was reported in the paper well before 2003 was not by Jamaicans.

      The businesses that have scammed me for payment have all been Caymanians. (dying to tell who screwed me over for a $300 repair I didn’t ask for- But He wouldn’t give me my car back until I paid-we need a Better Business Bureau!!)

      What planet do you live on?? LOL
      Jamaicans get such a bad rap on this island. Easy scapegoat for Caymanians…

      I have a lot of time for Jamaicans. I even like their attitude about weed..

    No woman deserves this, but walking alone at 4:30am is not a good decision on any street in Cayman nowadays.

      @8:11 – you have NO idea why that woman was walking on the street at 4:00. STOP blaming the victim!!!

      When my parents divorced, my mother had 2 children to care for. My mother worked at CNB during the day, when the bank closes to customers, she cleaned the bank. She then went to her THIRD job, as front desk clerk at the then Galleon beach hotel (she also cleaned the hotel rooms on weekends).

      My mother would then have to walk home to WB or hitch a ride home, sometimes at 2:00, 3:00 or 4:00 am. Only to get a couple of hours sleep and then get up, get her children ready for school and do it all over again.

      We did not have a car.

      So don’t you EVER DARE question what a woman. Is doing walking on any street at any time of day.

      Why wasn’t your first reaction, what is that man doing roaming the streets of GT at 4:00am.?

      It is people like you that make women reluctant to report rape and assault.

      Because with your thoughtless words, you have placed the blame squarely on the victim. And that is indefensible.

      You need to check yourself.

    Was there any cctv video of him from the area?

    This is what Cayman has come to. I warned about this a long time ago but nobody wanted to make the difficult decisions that needed to be made to deal with the emerging crisis. Now we are starting to pay the price for our inaction. It’s as simple as that.

    Terrible news. But w9men you should not walk alone on this island in George Town at 4.30am. Lunchtime is scary enough round there

      Or: Lone men should not sexually assault at 4:30am. Or any other time.

      Why is the onus on the victim and not the perpetrator?

      • Anonymous says:

        No one is blaming the victim here. You can still say that it is better to be safe and walk with someone else or get a ride if possible.

        I don’t think it is safe for anyone to be walking around at night in many parts of GT at this point.

          What about people who have to walk to get where they are going? Sometimes it isn’t a choice.

        • Anonymous says:

          @45:am – someone women have no choice. They may be going to work. Going to see a sick relative.

          BUT. IT. DOES. NOT. MATTER.

          A woman has the right to be on the street of wherever she feels she needs to be without having to be in danger of being raped.

          MEN.
          IF YOU SEE A WOMAN ALONE.

          LEAVE HER ALONE.

        I’m a man and wouldn’t feel safe walking around Eastern Avenue / Little Kingston at 4:30am.

    why do police not enforce lights/reflector regulations for bicycles? if they did …these perps would not be roaming the streets at night.
    will wait for answers.

    Curly hair like a jerry curl? Did he or they (it’s not clear in this article what the assailant’s preferred pronoun is) have blue curlers in he/she/they hair like Big Worm in the movie Friday? Could be Tyrone or Jamal.
    More information is needed to crack the case of this he/she/they/it attacker.

        Well said – you may not have the funds to afford a car or taxi every day, so walking to work early in the morning to earn an honest living is the only option. Bottom line is that it is very sad that a person can’t do this without the risk of being sexually assaulted.

      6:57p – TRUTH.
      But NOBODY believes that. I personally know this as a FACT. Have experienced it numerous times. From theft to physical violence to sexual assault. From those known to me, ‘friends’ and unknowns. Always be aware.
      Be careful who you trust and let into your home. Not all ‘friends’ mean you no harm.
      And I live nowhere near the crime hotspots that we all know exist.
      CaYmAn iS So sAfE. Hahahahahaha
