A man lost vision in his right eye after a fight in West Bay on Monday, police reported.
Royal Cayman Islands Police said the injury occurred when a fight broke out in the back yard of a home on Duxie’s Lane and a man was hit with a piece of wood.
A 16-year-old suspect was arrested Tuesday in connection with the attack. He had not been charged by press time.
Police said the victim and the suspect knew each other.
“It is our understanding from medical reports that the victim has permanently lost the vision in his right eye,” a police statement noted.
