Armed police interrupt attack

Two armed Royal Cayman Islands
Police Officers interrupted an attack on a woman early Thursday morning in West
Bay.

Police were patrolling along Garvin
Road, West Bay in the pre-dawn hours Thursday. They approached a parked vehicle
in the area and saw what they described as “a savage attack” on a young female
who was in her car. 

Officers said the offender ran off
into the bush when the officers approached. The officers rendered first aid to
the victim who had suffered a cut throat as well as bruising to her face. 

She was taken to hospital in stable
condition and is expected to survive.

A full scale search for the suspect
was carried out, but no arrests were immediately reported.

“The officers, by going about their
normal patrolling duty, clearly prevented what could have been an even worse
attack,” RCIPS Inspector Lauriston Burton said. “Every effort is being taken to
try and arrest the attacker.”
