Update: Police arrested a 34-year-old woman Saturday in connection with a wounding incident at a West Bay Road bar.
Police said a 49-year-old man received a serious injury to his neck while he was at Nectar Bar on West Bay Road. Officers said the man was expected to survive.
Investigators provided no potential motives for the attack. The woman who was arrested had not been charged immediately.
The victim was taken to the Cayman Islands Hospital after police said he was “slashed” at the Seven Mile Shops complex property on West Bay Road just before 3am Saturday.
The exact location of the attack was not immediately clear, however police had marked off several locations of the mall walkway where blood appeared to have pooled.
Officers were also walking in and out of the entrance of Nectar bar and a press release from the police department said the victim in the attack had been “slashed and seriously injured at the Nectar bar”.
The bar owner was on scene Saturday morning but declined to comment about what had occurred.
At around the same time as the bar incident was going on, police received a robbery report on Shedden Road in central George Town.
However, police could not immediately determine what had occurred since the victim was apparently “too intoxicated” to tell officers anything.
