Shortly after 12:30AM today, Sunday, 29 May, officers responded to a report of a stabbing incident, involving a firearm, at a residence in the Prospect area of George Town. It was reported that three persons, two men and a woman, all known to each other, were involved in an altercation at a residence on Domino Street. The woman brandished a firearm at one of the men, who grabbed it from her and made to leave the location. As he did so he was stabbed by the second man.
The injured man left the residence and sought help from persons nearby. He was assisted by the occupants of a nearby residence on Satinwood Street, where he remained until the arrival of the police.
Officers of the Firearms Response Unit attended the location and recovered the firearm, which contained one round of ammunition. Emergency services also attended and the man was transported to the Cayman Islands Hospital for treatment for his wound, and subsequently released.
The two other persons involved in the altercation, a man age 28 and a woman age 20, both of George Town, turned themselves into police and were both arrested on suspicion of possession of an unlicensed firearm and wounding. They remain in custody as investigations continue.
The RCIPS would like to express appreciation to the persons who assisted the wounded man, one of whom is a juvenile who first answered the man’s calls for help.
