Man charged in Bodden Town abduction

Police have
charged a 38-year-old man in connection with an alleged abduction in the Bodden
Town area last month.

Sometime just
after midnight on Monday, 31 January, Royal Cayman Islands Police said a man
and woman were driving in a car from George Town toward Bodden Town.

As the car
approached Bodden Town, police said the man, who was known to the woman, began
making sexual comments to her and refused to let her out of the car.

He drove the
car at speed toward East End, High Rock and then toward George Town again,
investigators said.

When the car
was in the Savannah area, it slowed down and the woman jumped from the moving
vehicle, sustaining slight injuries, police said.

The man then
drove off and the woman was taken to hospital for treatment.

The
subsequent police investigation led to the arrest of the 38-year-old man in
Bodden Town on Monday, 14 February.

The man has
been formally charged with abduction and unlawful confinement. He was expected
to appear in court Monday.
