Shortly after 1AM on Thursday 12 October, the 9-1-1 Communications Centre received a report of a robbery at Salty’s bar in Grand Harbour.

The three men proceeded to rob the group, during which one of the group, a man, received a head injury. The suspects escaped on foot heading east with a quantity of cash and personal belongings. The victim was taken to the Cayman Islands Hospital where he was treated for non-life-threatening injuries and released.
