A closing-time robbery at a popular George Town bar is under investigation by Royal Cayman Islands Police.
Officers said the heist took place around midnight Saturday at the outside bar at Brick House Bar and Restaurant located in Grand Harbour.
The 911 Emergency Communication Centre received a call reporting that a masked man, carrying what appeared to be a firearm, approached the bar and demanded cash.
Police said the offender approached the bar from the car park adjacent to Books by the Bay. He was given an undisclosed sum from the cash register and left on foot heading toward the Dog House.
‘We believe the offender ran past Dog House to the car park and made off in a vehicle, possibly an SUV,’ said RCIPS Detective Constable Gustavo Rodriguez. ‘We would like to hear from anyone that was in the area who may have seen something that could help our enquiries.’
Anyone with information about this crime should contact DC Rodriguez 526-0767.
