West Bay robbery suspect in court

A man has been charged and was expected to appear in court Monday in connection with a robbery at 3N’s grocery store in West Bay.

According to the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service, around 8pm Saturday, 5 March, a masked man armed with what appeared to be gun, entered 3N’s grocery store in Batabano Plaza, threatened staff and demanded cash.

The suspect then made off with a small sum of money. No shots were fired and no one was injured in the incident, police said.

A short time later the same evening, following a police operation in the West Bay area, a man was arrested on suspicion of robbery.

A 32-year-old man – Ryan Alija Ebanks – has now been charged with robbery and possession of an imitation firearm in connection with the incident. He’s due back in court on Wednesday.
