Machete attack in George Town

Victim in critical condition.

Police
are investigating a suspected machete attack on a man outside his home in
Courts Road in the early hours of Monday morning.

The
victim is in Cayman Islands Hospital in critical condition following the attack
and was expected to be flown to Jamaica for medical treatment later today
[Monday].

Police
said the man, an Indian national, had stepped outside his North Town Courts
apartment between midnight and 2am to call his wife in Goa when the attack
occurred.

Shortly
before 3am, he returned to the apartment suffering from serious head injuries.

He
said he had been violently attacked by two unknown men who struck him on the
head with what may have been a machete.

“This
would appear to be a motiveless and vicious assault on a young man who was telephoning
his recently married wife back in his homeland of India,” said Detective
Constable Orlando Mason who is leading the hunt for the attackers.

He
appealed for anyone who may have been in the Courts Road area at the relevant
time and saw anything suspicious to contact him at George Town CID on 949-4222
or call Crime Stoppers on 800-8477 (TIPS).
