Victim injured in wb violent home invasion – cayman news service cayman news service

(CNS): Police are on the lookout for two men who committed a violent robbery at a home off Mount Pleasant Road in West Bay last night. At around 10pm on Wednesday a man who was in his yard was approached by two men he did not know. One of the men brandished a handgun and demanded that they go inside the house. Once inside, the culprits hit the man on the head with the handgun and then made off with cash and other personal items. Police said emergency services attended to the man at the scene but he was then transported in a private vehicle to hospital, where he was treated for the head injury and released.

The matter is under investigation and anyone who may have seen anything suspicious in the area or has any other information is asked to contact the West Bay Police Station at 949-3999. Anonymous tips can be provided to the RCIPS Confidential Tip Line at 949-7777, or via the RCIPS website. Tips can also be submitted anonymously via the Miami-based call centre of Crime Stoppers at 800-8477(TIPS), or online here.


I appreciate that you do update your stories but time is of the essence in some of these cases. These updates don’t come in for at least a day or two and by then I already got that info from my group of friends the day before. If I can find out, I’m sure you can too. Just want you to be a better publication is all and a place where we can come for helpful information.

Secondly, CNS has one – yes, just one – on the ground journalist (just look at this site to see how much work she does) and a total staff of three, and all of us work very long hours. This is not a pity party, I’m just explaining that we have to use our time very carefully, and going to the scene of the crime to gather a few more details is very often something we just don’t have time to do. It’s a time management decision.

We could pander to government, pander to developers and get more advertising dollars to hire more staff, but we choose not to. For example, the tourism ministry is busy buying ads in other publications and radio to advertise the upcoming meeting on the cruise port. For some strange reason they left us off the list, as did the pro-port lobby. We could join the pro-port bandwagon and reap the rewards, but we prefer to publish the truth as we find it.

4:45 You should be ashamed of yourself for even setting foot on Caymans soil! There are good and troubled in every country and to generalize and be so critical of the Cayman people that made these islands to what they are today for everyone to enjoy and profit from shows us how ignorant you really are! You are even an embarrassment to your own country! Even in your great big U.S. of A, All of the farmlands and most businesses up there have foreign people working for them. Even a few of your own American countrymen have even said to me that they dont hire locals due to the fact that majority of them are lazy and just waiting for something to happen so they can Sue them! So I would keep quiet on that one. In Addition America and like most countries was founded and made up of immigrants and still is. You obviously came here for a reason? I assume it’s to invest? Why not in your own country? Or will the taxes kill your little retirement plan? Do us a favor and leave us. Cayman does NOT need your type here. Remember that time is longer than rope and one day it will come back and bite you! Change your ways!
