Police are hunting for a man who indecently assaulted a female jogger in West Bay early Tuesday.
The woman was on Bonneville Drive by the entrance to The Shores when a man, who was barefoot, attacked her, throwing her to the ground and assaulting her, at about 5:30 a.m. and then ran off when she screamed, according to the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service.
“The RCIPS would like to encourage anyone out exercising early in the morning to be very vigilant of their surroundings and if possible exercise with another person,” Chief Inspector Brad Ebanks said in a press statement.
Police have previously warned women in West Bay against exercising alone after a series of incidents between May and July involving a man on a bicycle who had grabbed and molested women, usually in the early hours of the morning as they were walking or running. Inspector Ebanks said those cases are still under investigation.
