Royal Cayman Islands Police are searching for suspects in an attempted robbery and a robbery last week in George Town.

The attempted robbery occurred early Saturday on Portland Road near North Sound Road when a man was jumped and struck in the head by two robbery suspects. The victim told police he was threatened with a knife, but that he managed to escape the scene before the suspects took anything.

The victim was found by police knocking on the door of a nearby residence trying to get help. No arrests were immediately reported.

The Saturday morning attack occurred just more than 48 hours after a robbery on South Church Street, George Town, where a man riding a bicycle home was robbed by three suspects.

Police said the robbers hid behind a construction container on South Church Street near Thompson Way and struck the victim on the back of the head, causing him to fall off his bike.
