Royal Cayman Islands Police have arrested two men in connection with a
robbery of some schoolboys in George Town that happened late Monday afternoon.
Police said at about 4.25pm Monday, officers received a report that five teenage boys – all ages 13 and 14 – were robbed as they walked from John Gray High School towards the
Truman Bodden Sports Complex.
As the boys walked along Liguinea Circle just after 3pm that day, a grey car stopped beside them. Police said two men inside the vehicle demanded
that the boys hand over their cash and valuables.
The boys gave over a small sum of cash and the car drove off. It was believed the amount taken was less than $20.
Police arrived and obtained statements from the students. One of the boys told police he
had seen what looked like a firearm within the car – but at no time was the gun
pointed at the boys, police said.
No one was injured
in the incident.
Later the same day, two men were arrested in connection with the incident. One man, 45,
was arrested on suspicion of theft and another, 22, was arrested on
suspicion of robbery and possession of an unlicensed firearm.
