About 8.50 pm Thursday, two masked men entered McRuss grocery store on Marina Drive. Witnesses said one of the men was armed with what appeared to be a handgun.
The men threatened the cashier and demanded money. Police said the cashier’s eight-year-old son and some customers were in the store during the robbery.
The suspects grabbed a sum of money, ran out of the store and are then believed to have entered a black Toyota Prado before driving off from the scene, police said.
No shots were fired and no one was injured in the incident.
Police said the suspects wore dark clothing and Halloween masks. One of the robbers was around 5’3″ and the other was around 5’11” . They both were of medium build and spoke with Caymanian accents, police said.
Anyone who was in the area at the relevant time and witnessed the crime, or the suspects fleeing the scene in the black Prado, is asked to contact George Town police station on 949-4222 or the confidential Crime Stoppers number 800-8477 (TIPS).
