Timbuctuu restaurant in West Bay was hit by robbers for the second time this year.
Just before 9.30pm Tuesday, Royal Cayman Islands Police officers said two masked men entered Timbuctuu on Town Hall Road.
One of the robbery suspects was armed with what appeared to be a handgun. Officers said the two men threatened staff before fleeing the scene with a sum of cash.
They were last seen running out of the rear door of the business.
No shots were fired and no one was injured.
The two suspects are described as being around 5ft 10′ and wearing dark clothing. They both had their faces covered.
Tuesday’s robbery occurred less than three weeks after a 14 January heist at the West Bay diner. In that incident, two men accosted staff who were sitting outside the store and forced them inside the business to retrieve some cash.
No one was hurt in the January robbery either. The suspect descriptions in the two cases differed significantly.
Anyone who was in the area at the relevant time and witnessed the robbery, or the men running off from the scene , should contact West Bay police station on 949 – 3999 or the confidential Crime Stoppers number 800-8477 (TIPS).
