A 63-year-old man was robbed near a George Town bar Saturday night, Royal Cayman Islands Police reported.
About 8.50pm Saturday, the man was sitting in his car, which was parked in an unlit area, near Archie’s Bar in George Town. He had been in the bar earlier in the evening playing dominoes, police said.
As the man counted out some money in the car, police said he was approached by two people in dark clothing. Both appeared to have their faces covered. Police said one of the suspects demanded cash before striking the man’s head with an unknown object. The suspects then grabbed the cash – around $225 – and ran from the scene, police said.
The man suffered minor injuries and did not require medical attention.
One of the suspects is described as being around 5’7” in height and of stocky build. RCIPS K-9, armed officers, patrol and air operations units were on the scene, but no arrests were immediately reported. Anyone who was in the area and witnessed the robbery or the suspects running away is asked to contact George Town Criminal Investigation Department at 949-4222 or Crime Stoppers 800-8477 (TIPS).
