Police: Woman mugged on South Church Street

A woman was reportedly mugged in the vicinity of Sunset House on South Church Street in George Town on Friday night, according to the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service.

The RCIPS said in a press release that they received a report of the incident at about 9:20 p.m.

The woman was walking along South Church Street when she was approached by a male on a bicycle who stole her handbag. The woman received minor injuries, but did not require treatment at hospital.

Anyone who was approached Friday evening by a male or a male riding a bicycle in the South Church Street area, or anyone who has information regarding the incident is asked to call the George Town CID at 949-4222, or Crime Stoppers at 800-8477 (TIPS).


  1. One fact that appears to be missing from this article is that the 26 year old lady was a tourist.

    I guess she’ll be posting some interesting comments on TripAdvisor.

  2. This seems like a regular thing of women getting mugged and “Handbag grabbing” along South church street. Persons walking this area has got to be alert and prepared, because there are some serious people riding that stretch late hours.

  3. While I must applaud the RCIP and the acting COP now for taking crime as a serious issue, and arresting anyone who break the Law .
    But I think that more police presence on the roads needs to be shown to these handbag criminals , the more presence in neighborhood and roads the police do , the criminal would think twice not knowing when the police would show up, and if they do they would have seen a criminal suspect and wouldn’t have to ask the public for help to catch the criminal.
