Police arrested a hit-and-run driver over the weekend after a bicyclist was struck and injured in George Town early Saturday.
The 23-year-old male driver was arrested Saturday on suspicion of drunk driving and leaving the scene of an accident. The crash happened at about 6 a.m. near the Blue Marlin bar on Eastern Avenue. By the time police arrived at the scene, the driver had fled.
The cyclist survived, but doctors at the Cayman Islands Hospital were forced to amputate his left foot, authorities said.
Last Wednesday, three masked, armed men burst into a West Bay home in the middle of the afternoon, demanding money from a 67-year-old woman who was inside with her 5-year-old granddaughter. The woman was grabbed by the neck and forced to the ground, police said.
When the men were told there was no money in the house, they left on foot. Neither the woman nor the child received serious injuries.
