Tourist assaulted

The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service is appealing for witnesses to an assault which occurred in the early hours of this morning (Tuesday, February 24) in the car park next to Next Level and behind Triple Crown.

Police were alerted to the incident at around 1.40am after the 24-year-old victim was taken to hospital with serious injuries to his arms and body.

Detectives have learnt that the victim, who is visiting friends in Grand Cayman from Switzerland, had been in the Next Level nightclub. His girlfriend, who realized he had not been seen for some time, went looking for him outside and found him injured in the car park. He was taken to hospital by private car and is currently being treated for two broken arms and injuries to his body. The victim has since told police he was attacked by two men with a baseball bat.

‘We’d like to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time who might have seen what took place,’ said Detective Sergeant Winsome Prendergast. ‘That area can be busy at this time of night with people from the nightclub and surrounding bars. Anyone who was in the area that saw something that can help should contact us as soon as possible.’

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact DS Prendergast on 949-4222 or Crime Stoppers on 800-8477 (TIPS). All persons calling Crime Stoppers remain anonymous, and are eligible for a reward of up to $1,000, should their information lead to an arrest or recovery of property/drugs.
