Royal Cayman Islands Police said Monday that they are investigating a report of a robbery and stabbing in the George
Town area that occurred late Saturday night or in the early hours of Sunday morning.
Police said a 32-year-old man
was walking in George Town when he was pushed to the ground. A struggle ensued
and the assailant fled the scene with his victim’s wallet.
It was believed the incident took place in the vicinity of Mary Street and Genesis Close, but police didn’t specify a time.
The man sustained a
chest injury in the attack and flagged down a passing car for assistance. Police said the
driver of the car took the man to the Cayman Islands Hospital where he is
currently being treated for a stab wound to his chest.
He’s in stable condition.
Police enquiries to
establish exactly where and when this attack took place are ongoing.
Detective Constable Wade Chase is appealing to anyone who has any information about this
crime to come forward.
“If you were the Good Samaritan who drove the
victim to the hospital I need to speak to you as a matter of urgency,” Detective Chase said. “You may
have valuable information which could help us with the enquiry and trace the
person responsible for this vicious attack.”
