GT eatery held up in broad daylight

Royal Cayman Islands Police detectives are seeking two armed men
who held up staff at a local restaurant Thursday afternoon.

Investigators said, just before 3pm, officers got a report that two men – one armed with what appeared to be a gun and the other with a machete – entered Miss Elaine’s Restaurant on
School House Road, George Town.

Police said the men threatened staff and demanded cash shortly after entering. An
unknown amount of cash was taken from the restaurant. One adult male customer
was also robbed of his wallet, police said.

The suspects are described as follows:

#1: Approximately 5’7” in height, slim built and wearing a Red ‘T’ Shirt, Blue
Jeans Pants.

Suspect #2: Approximately
5’9” in height, slim built and wearing a White ‘T’ Shirt and blue Jeans pants.

Both suspects’ faces were covered with white woolen
masks, witnesses said.

The suspects left the scene on foot and were last
seen running towards McField Lane, police said.

No shots were fired and no one was injured in the

Anyone who was in the area at the relevant time who
witnessed the crime or the suspects making off from the scene is asked to
contact George Town CID on 949-4222 or the confidential Crime Stoppers number
800-8477 (TIPS).


  1. As small as Grand Cayman is, there has to be several people out there who have a good idea who is behind this. If money is the issue, then start a Crime Stoppers like here in the United States. Anonymous reports with cash incentives. The amount rewarded probably far exceeds the actual take in the robberies (so why run the risk of a robbery when it is simpler to turn someone else in?). And you potentially get a couple of miscreants off the street.

    It seems to work here.

  2. People don’t turn these folks in because they know then personally are Kin to them and most likely are involved in the planning of these heists. I sure the guys doing this go home and hand over some of the take, which means that everyone is involved in the crime just like the mafia it’s a family business. Parents and wives of young men who have no job yet come home with money regularly or whenever needed and chose to ignore the obvious are just as guilty as the ones actually doing the stickups and should be charged as well.
