Police are hunting for a lone gunman who held up a liquor store in Grand Cayman’s main tourist district on Friday night.
The robber made off with just over $800 in the raid on Blackbeard’s at the Falls shopping plaza, opposite The Westin Grand Cayman Resort.
Witnesses said the gunman pointed his weapon at staff and demanded “give me di money.” It is the fourth time a liquor store has been held up by armed robbers in the last month.
In the latest robbery, just before 10 p.m. Friday, police said the suspect, described as 5-feet, 5-inches tall, slim build and with a dark complexion, pointed a black and silver handgun at each of the store’s cashiers and demanded that they empty the tills.
A police spokesman said the gunman was dressed in a dark long-sleeved T-shirt, wearing a baseball cap, with a bandana covering his face and carrying a green Kirk supermarket bag. No shots were fired and no one was injured in the raid.
Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Owen Santo on 324-0684 or call Crime Stoppers anonymously on 800-8477(Tips).
