Armed robbers struck twice within an hour in George Town on
Sunday night, 18 March.
In the first incident, a man armed with a handgun attempted
to rob a female taxi driver.
Police said the attempted robbery occurred around 9.20pm
when the cab driver arrived in Breezy Way in George Town to pick up a fare. As
she arrived at the location, a man appeared from the bushes and pointed a
handgun at the window of the taxi. The woman drove off and the man did not get
any cash, police said.
The suspect is described as having a brown complexion and
about 5 foot, 7 inches tall. He was of small build with a broad upper body and
was wearing blue denim cut-off pants, a dark long-sleeved shirt and a navy blue
and white bandana. He also had a dark tam covering his head and face.
Around 50 minutes later, at approximately 10pm, two masked
men entered the office of Cayman Karting in Sparkys Drive, George Town, where
staff were closing up for the night. One of the men had a handgun.
The suspects demanded money before fleeing the scene with a
sum of cash.
Police described one of the suspects as being of skinny
build, about 5 foot, 9 inches tall, wearing a yellow and black hoody, long dark
baggy jeans and a bandana covering the face. He spoke with a Caymanian accent.
The second masked man was 5 foot, 11 inches in height, wearing all black
clothing and a bandana covering his face.
No shots were fired and no-one was injured in either of
these incidents, police said.
