A lone male brandishing a machete reportedly entered a liquor store on Maclendon Drive in George Town on Tuesday night and stole cash from the register.

The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service indicated officers reported to the scene around 10:10pm.

Police described the man as wearing a cream-coloured hoody with a black mask covering his face, and gloves.

“He entered the store and held the machete to the employees, and then smashed the glass counter in the store before taking a small amount of cash that was in the cash register. He then made off in a light-coloured vehicle,” RCIPS said.

No one was reported injured in the incident.
