A man arrested following a fight outside a George Town home early Friday faces a number of criminal charges, including burglary, assault causing grievous bodily harm and theft.

The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service reported the “disturbance” occurred around 2:15 a.m. Nov. 13 where family members at a home on Rock Hole Road had attempted to detain a man on their property.

Following a fight at the location, the man, age 46, was arrested nearby on suspicion of burglary. Both the suspect and some of the people he fought with were hospitalized following the incident.

The suspect appeared in court Monday, charged with burglary, theft and insulting the modesty of a woman. Grievous bodily harm charges were also filed, police said.
