Street mugger robs two victims at knifepoint

| 29/09/2023 | 10 Comments

(CNS): Police are investigating two street robberies that happened in George Town on Tuesday night that police believe were committed by the same man with a missing tooth. The mugger, who was riding a grey bicycle, struck first at about 6:15pm on Courts Road near Eastern Avenue when he approached his victim and asked for a dollar. As the man opened his wallet, the culprit snatched at the cash. A struggle followed in which the mugger brandished a knife before fleeing the location with the contents of the wallet. No one was hurt in the incident.

Shortly afterwards, in the area of Autumn Lane off Bodden Road, the mugger struck for the second time. He approached the victim and asked for money, but then brandished a knife and took a quantity of personal cash from the victim before fleeing the location.

The suspect is between 5’9″ and 5’11” tall and of dark complexion. Police said that he was wearing a bandana, a marina and jeans pants, and was riding a grey bicycle in the first incident. In the second incident he was wearing a black face towel around his face, a marina, and was on foot. He is also described as having a tooth missing.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact the George Town Police Station at 949-4222. Anonymous tips can be provided to the RCIPS Confidential Tip Line at 949-7777 or the website. Tips can also be submitted anonymously to

    Working in central GT, every day I am asked for a dollar or two. I know a lot of this is down to mental health and addiction struggles, but it’s not addressed by any government agency. Therefore, it’d be nice if the laws around begging were enforced. These characters can be quite intimidating to the uninitiated, and don’t mind approaching tourists.

    Immigration laws could fix this increasing mess. When the crime moves to seven mile beach, it will be too damn late.

    We should all begin walking with a stout walking stick. That alone, will probably cut down on half of the assaults, that a person is walking with a stick/staff/cane. I suggest Spanish Elm as a sturdy staff, but almost anything would do, even PVC. If PVC, no less than 3/4″, preferably 1″. These thugs need to be soundly beaten when they accost the residents. Then, perhaps, beaten a tad more. I mean, really, who’s to know? Then call the RCIPS and threaten to beat the thugs more if they don’t hold still.

    Yes, I believe that is a reasonable response to the nonsense that is going on lately. We need to create a collective response to these criminals. The RCIPS can only respond to an event. We need to collectively make a difference.

    I hope others are now circumspect when it comes to giving money to people who beg or bum for a dollar!

    importing poverty

      Here we go again. Blame the people who were born in another country when Caymanians commit crime.

        So we should continue to import poverty and crime because we don’t have enough of our own? Stupid, disingenuous argument at best.
