Home invasion reported in West Bay

A West Bay resident awoke Thursday to find two masked intruders in her bedroom on Town Hall Road, Royal Cayman Islands Police reported.

Police officers said the woman, 50, was awoken by the movement of two men in the room. The suspects demanded money, police said, and one of the men appeared to be carrying a handgun.

There was no money on the property; the men took jewelry from the woman’s bedside table, police said.

According to police, the suspects entered the home through a “partially insecure doorway” after attempting to break in through a window.

The break-in, which occurred around 1:30 a.m., was not reported to police until 5:20 a.m.

Detectives from West Bay CID ask anyone with information about this case to call 949-3999 or Crime Stoppers at 800-8477 (TIPS).
