Two arrested over stabbing
(CNS): Two men are currently in police custody in connection with a violent, possibly gang related attack which took place at Million Dollar Run boat race party on Seven Mile Beach on Easter Monday. Police said that a 28-year-old man is currently recovering in hospital following a stabbing at Royal Palms in the afternoon of 9 April. The incident occurred at around 4:10pm when police received a report that a man had sustained stab wounds to his body in the beachside bar. The man was taken to the Cayman Islands Hospital, George Town, where he is currently in a stable condition with wounds that are not believed to be life threatening.
The two men who were arrested in the wake of the stabbing on suspicion of attempted murder are aged 18 and 24 years. Police said they remain in police custody while enquiries continue.
The officer in charge of the enquiry, Detective Sergeant Joe Wright, said the bar where the stabbing took place was very busy on Monday afternoon because of the Million Dollar Run event.
“The stabbing took place on the beachside patio area of the bar. Anyone who was in the area and saw the stabbing, or indeed any kind of a disturbance take place, is urged to contact the police as soon as possible. Information can be given in confidence. In addition, if you have any video footage or photographs which were taken in the bar area yesterday we would be keen to view those,” he said
Police confirmed that one line of enquiry being followed was that the attack was not random but that it may have been gang related.
Anyone with information which could assist the enquiry should contact George Town police station on 949-4222, the RCIPS Tip-line on 949-7777 or Crime Stoppers on 800-8477(TIPS).
