Would-be robbers in Prospect fired a gun while running from the scene of an attempted holdup Monday night, police say.
Two masked men with a gun approached a couple returning home at about 10:15 p.m. on Bamboo Street. The woman ran inside and her husband took a swing at the men, according to a statement from the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service.
The two men ran off down the short residential street, firing one shot as they fled. No one was hurt and nothing was stolen in the incident, said RCIPS Superintendent Adrian Seales.
The two men wore black hoodies. One was about 5 feet, 11 inches tall. The other was approximately 5 feet, 2 inches tall and wore black gloves and a white cloth over his face.
Anyone with information is asked to call detectives at the George Town Police Station at 949-4222 or Cayman Crime Stoppers at 800-8477.
