A man and his family were subjected to a terrifying robbery ordeal during which they were locked inside a room in their own home.

A gang of three – two men and a woman – armed with handguns jumped the victim outside his house on Eastern Avenue.

A spokesman for the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service said: “At about 8.17pm on Wednesday night, 911 received a call from a male stating he had just been robbed at his residence on Eastern Avenue in the vicinity of Payless Autos and the suspects had left on foot.

“Police arrived a short time later, secured the victims and the scene, set up roadblocks and commenced a search of the area.

“The details that emerged were two males brandishing what appeared to be handguns and a female approached the victim outside his home address.

“The suspects then forced the victim back into his residence and demanded he hand over any cash.

“A quantity of cash was handed over, the victim and his family were then locked in a room and the suspects ran from the scene.”
