The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS) has begun an investigation into an apparent abduction which occurred Monday night.
The 911 Emergency Communications Centre received a call at approximately 8.20pm reporting that they had found a woman in a distressed state in the vicinity of Pappagallo restaurant, West Bay.
Police responded to the scene and found that a 29-year-old woman was in a very distressed condition. She has since told officers that she was driving home when she stopped at the Caribbean Bakery on Mount Pleasant Road.
She says that when she got back into her vehicle, there was a man armed with a knife inside. She told police that he forced her to drive into the Barkers area where he told her to get out of the car. The woman then ran away.
‘This woman has been exceptionally brave,’ said Acting Chief Superintendent Marlon Bodden. ‘What happened to her must have been terrifying and the incident is being taken extremely seriously. We have a team of officers working on this case,’ he said.
The suspect is described as around 6ft tall of slim build and dark complexion and he was wearing dark clothes. Anyone who was in the West Bay area, in particular in the area of Batabano Plaza or the Caribbean Bakery between 7pm and 8pm, who may have seen something suspicious, is asked to contact George Town CID on 949-4222.
