Laundromat held up

Royal Cayman Islands Police are
investigating after a man robbed the Quick Wash laundry on Eastern Avenue
Friday evening.

Witnesses said the suspect’s head
was covered by a jacket and that he was carrying what appeared to be a firearm
when he entered the store just after 7pm Friday.

Police said the man threatened
staff and demanded money before making off with a sum of cash.

When the suspect left the laundry,
he was spotted getting on a red bicycle. No arrests were immediately reported.

No shots were fired and no one was
injured as a result of the incident.

The suspect is described as being
of chubby build with a dark complexion. He was wearing a black and white shirt,
blue jean pants and had a black jacket in his possession.

Anyone who was in the
area at the relevant time who may have information about the robbery, or who
saw the suspect making off from the scene on the red bicycle, is asked to
contact George Town CID on 949–4222 or Crime Stoppers 800–8477(TIPS).
