Man mugged in Public Beach bathroom

In the third beach attack here since the beginning of the year, police said a man approached officers in the Public Beach area and said he’d been robbed.

Royal Cayman Islands Police said sometime around midnight Saturday, the man, who was attending the Full Moon Party at Calico Jack’s, had entered the male rest rooms on Public Beach.

Officers said the man was confronted by four males – one of whom threatened him a knife and demanded that he had over his wallet, watch and cell phone. Police said one of the suspects struck the victim on the back of the head with what is believed to have been a bottle.

The four suspects then left the rest room, police said.

A short time later the victim reported the incident to police officers who were patrolling in the beach area.

An ambulance was dispatched to the scene and the man was taken to the Cayman Islands Hospital, George Town, with a slight head injury. He was released following treatment.

Police said the victim is unable to provide descriptions of his assailants at this time.

Anyone who was in the area at the relevant time and has any information about the incident is asked to contact West Bay police station on 949-3999 or the confidential Crime Stoppers number 800-8477 (TIPS).

  1. Time we had armed Police officers on duty in all these sorts of regular thuggery/robbery places.
    And time that visitors who are obviously not noraml tourists were denied entry – make them show their bookings, credit arrangements etc before allowing them to enter Cayman.
    That is, assuming these thugs are not Caymanians or legal Cayman residents.
    The wholesale grant of status some years ago may have something to do with it?

  2. Normal Tourists? Who is suggesting the robbers were tourists?
    The immigration service are tasked with doing exactly as you suggest.
    It appears this is another example of someone burying their head in the sand as to what is happening by blaming everyone else.
    WAKE UP………

  3. I am fully convinced that the Cayman Islands Police force and elected government is run by a bunch of monkeys and circus clowns.

    These stories are so commonplace in your newspapers now, it is rare not to see a story on crime, robbery, burglary, etc.

    It is time your island realizes what everyone else off island is already saying-you are no longer a destination location
