A George Town man and his family were locked inside a room in their home following an armed robbery Wednesday night, Royal Cayman Islands Police said.
According to police, two men brandishing firearms and a third suspect, a female, approached the robbery victim outside his home near the Payless Auto store on Eastern Avenue.
Police said the armed suspects forced the man back into his home, where they were given a sum of cash.
“The victim and his family were locked in a room and the suspects ran from the scene,” said RCIPS Chief Inspector Frank Owens.
No one was physically hurt in the hold-up.
The male robbery suspects were both tall – 6′ 4″ – according to the robbery victims. One wore a long-sleeved green and brown military jacket and a dark scarf over his face. The second male suspect was wearing a purple jacket and also had his face covered, police said.
The female robber was short and stocky and wore a white short-sleeved blazer, police said.
Shortly after the robbery, police set up roadblocks in the Eastern Avenue area and conducted a search, but no arrests were immediately reported.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call RCIPS at 949-4222 or Cayman Crime Stoppers at 800-8477.
