Robbers target George Town barbecue spot

Armed robbers held up Chef John’s barbecue spot in George Town, Friday evening.

Police said two men arrived at “a business on Crewe Road” just before 6:30 p.m. One of them brandished a firearm and demanded cash.

There were several customers at the venue at the time. No shots were fired, but one of the patrons suffered minor injuries, according to a statement from the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service.

The men fled the scene with a “quantity of cash,” police said.

  1. Not good Grand Cayman. Catch those responsible and punish them to the fullest extent of the law.

    It’s venues like Chef Johns that offer visitors the ability to connect with the people and culture of Cayman. Standing in line waiting for my dinner I have met and talked with so many Caymanians. Saturday night is Chef Johns ribs, chicken and a visit with his great Family.

    Don,t sleep on this crime. Get them.
