A 36-year-old man has been arrested
and is in police custody on suspicion of robbery and possession of an offensive
weapon, the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service said.
About 2.10am on Thursday 8 July
2010, a man claiming to be in possession of a gun threatened another male in
Fairbanks Road, George Town. The suspect then tore a necklace from around his
victim’s neck, police said, and ran off towards nearby bushes. The victim did
not see a gun during the commission of the robbery, and no one was injured.
About 7.55pm Sunday, police said,
officers carried out an operation in relation to the robbery.
As officers approached the suspect
in Diaz lane, George Town, he produced a knife. The officers disarmed the
suspect who was then arrested and taken into police custody.
None of the officers involved in
the incident was injured.
Police enquiries are ongoing.
