Royal Cayman Islands Police Service investigators said there was nothing to suggest the robberies were connected, but noted they were still looking into the incidents and were “keeping an open mind”.
The first robbery happened around 4.15am Tuesday along North Church Street. Police said a man walking along the road was approached by four young men who assaulted him and stole his jewellery and wallet.
It is believed that the four males then left the scene in a silver coloured motorcar.
The second incident occurred at 9.15pm in the vicinity of Goring Avenue and Miss Kippy Lane. In that case, a man was approched by three males, one who was armed with a knife. The robbers demanded that the victim hand over all valuables in his possession, police said.
The man gave the suspects his belongings, and afterward police said the suspects assaulted the victim before running away.
Police did not state how badly either robbery victim was hurt in the assaults.
