RCIPS, Cayman News Service

(CNS): A couple were treated in hospital last night for injuries sustained during an assault by two robbers as they left a house on Andresen Road in West Bay at around 11:00pm. The victims reported the incident to officers on patrol in the area, who gave them medical attention before an ambulance arrived and took them to the hospital.

The victims told police that as they left the residence, they were attacked by two men dressed in black, one of whom was carrying a gun. A struggle ensued, during which both victims received head injuries from being struck, possibly with the firearm and another object.

The culprits then fled on foot with a quantity of cash and personal items from the victims. No shots were fired during the robbery. Police did not say if the couple were leaving their own home or another house where they had been visiting, nor did they say whether the couple were carrying cash from a business and likely a target.

No arrests have been made, but the couple have since been discharged from the hospital.

    Practice your spiritual fitness everybody. Say what you need to say to your loved ones when you leave the house in the morning and so on.

    You may very well get murdered on your own doorstep. That is the Island we live on now. It didn’t happen here but that does not change anything.

          Andre has at least set an example of educated dignified demeanor, compared to the worthless rabble that have infected the district.

          Why is representation about doing something for a small area? Should it not be about doing something for the country first so that ALL areas may benefit? Case in point, FATF Grey List removal so that lot of jobs and business remain.

            Hear hear. The district politician method should be done away with. It’s what’s happens to each of the islands & to Cayman in general that is important.
            Let’s reduce the number of politicians & scrap one man one vote. Hard to buy votes if you need to convince voters across an island that you are worthy of their vote.
            Maybe 12 votes each & choose from the list of those standing?

    This is the turning point for Cayman! If the Government does not restore stability we are going to lose the right to say we are a safe jurisdiction! Why haven’t we heard from the elected Government on this incident? Are they afraid of the criminals too? Meanwhile they are in their glamour trips abroad, hosting birthday parties and spending the countries meager revenues. Three attempted armed robberies in one night ? We are destabilizing PACT what are you doing about it ?

      It was like this last holiday season. How many armed robberies did they have right before Christmas?

    This is a small place. Why would anyone let this kind of behaviour continue in your back yard.
    Never seen so many articles in CNS about violent crime and robberies as in the past 12 months.

    No spine Cayman.

      Criminals no longer fear getting caught.
      The sentences are light, and with early release , time in jail ain’t so bad.
      So our government is planning to spend $100Millon on building a new and VERY
      comfortable prison. Gym, library, tv room, classrooms, plus three meals a day and so on.
      Why the hell wouldn’t ANY criminal fear getting caught, if their sentence is going to be served in Northward Resort. Fed and cared for in circumstances far better than their lives outside prison.

      Expat cops, expat standards.

        Yes from where?
        Issue is where we get those expats and the caliber. You can blame yourself for voting in the caliber of politicians as well.

          From where?

          The same place as the legal department, the prison service, AND the judiciary, from what I can tell.

          It’s not exactly a bastion of law and order and the highest standards of good governance, either. Puzzled as to why we would recruit so extensively from such a limited pool, especially if we want to recruit the world’s best whenever a Caymanian cannot be found.

    I hope that they are recovering well but this does not seem like a random robbery.

        Well if someone took my stuff outside my house they could have my wallet with very little cash without a struggle. I would cancel my debit card as soon as I got inside, even before I reported the incident.
        So I speculate that these bad people knew that the victims had stuff worth taking.
