Stabbing, assault reported in George Town

A stabbing early Monday left a man hospitalized in critical condition, Royal Cayman Islands Police reported.

The attack on Seymour Road happened less than 24 hours after an assault across town on Boilers Road, police said.

In the latest attack, police were called to Seymour Road and North Sound Road where a 44-year-old male was found to have been stabbed in the chest. He was listed in critical condition at the Cayman Islands Hospital on Monday.

Police said the victim may have attended some bars in the area prior to being attacked. There was no word on any arrests by press time Monday.

A separate, unrelated assault was reported on Boilers Road around 3 a.m. Sunday.

Police said the 38-year-old victim was sitting in his car when he was approached by another man, who police said was a passenger in a black BMW.

Police said the BMW passenger, who appeared to have a gun, smashed the victim’s driver-side window and assaulted him. Two other men and a woman in the BMW did not participate in the assault, police said.

The victim was taken to hospital, treated and discharged on Sunday.

Anyone with information regarding either of these attacks is asked to call George Town Criminal Investigation Department at 949-4222 or to contact Crime Stoppers at 800-8477(TIPS). Tips to police can also be submitted online at
