Cayman: Police Interrupt Violent Incident on Seafarers Way, George Town

Just after 12:15AM today, 5 May, police officers in plain clothes were on foot patrol in the area of Seafarers Way and Cardinal Avenue in George Town when they were alerted to a disturbance taking place at the area. Further investigations led the officers to come upon an incident where a man was seen with a machete, in motion, about to assault another man at the location.

The officers immediately identified themselves, and in an effort to prevent loss of life, one of the officers challenged the man armed with the machete using his service weapon. The armed man complied with the instructions of the officer and who instructed him to discard the weapon.

The armed man was subsequently arrested on suspicion of possession of a restricted weapon and other offences relating to this incident. He was taken into custody where he remains pending further investigation by the police.
