A man is recovering in hospital after he was stabbed at Royal Palms along Grand Cayman’s Seven Mile Beach Monday afternoon.
Royal Cayman Islands Police said two other men were arrested in
connection with the incident.
“The Royal Palms was very busy [Monday] afternoon because of the
Million Dollar Run event,” said RCIPS Sergeant Joe Wright. “The stabbing took place on the beach side patio
Officers said they were looking into the possibility that the incident may have been “gang-related”.
At about 4.10pm Monday, police received
a report that a 28-year-old man had
sustained stab wounds to his body following an incident at the beach side bar
at Royal Palms on Seven Mile Beach.
Police said the man was taken to the Cayman Islands
Hospital where he is in stable condition. His injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.
Two men, age 18 and 24, have since been arrested in
connection with the incident. They were arrested on suspicion of attempted
murder and remain in police custody.
“Anyone who was in the area and saw the stabbing, or indeed any kind of
a disturbance take place, is urged to contact the police as soon as possible,” Sergeant Wright said.
“Information can be given in confidence. In addition, if you have any video
footage or photographs which were taken in the bar area [Monday] we would be
keen to view those.”
