Fashion store robbed in George Town

Armed thieves threatened a member of staff at a George Town clothes store before making off with a quantity of cash. 

The robbers struck at 7.15pm on Monday at Awescay Fashions in Shedden Road next to Funky Tangs.

A RCIPS spokeswoman said: “The woman working saw two men  drive up to the store in a grey  coloured Honda Civic. The men, who were armed with what appeared to be firearms, entered the store, threatened the woman  and then made off with a sum of cash.

“No shots were fired and no-one was injured in the incident.

“They drove off in the direction of Martin Drive, it is believed that they then turned on Tigris Street and re-entered Shedden Road.

“Both suspects are described as being of slim build and  between 5’8″ to 5’10” in height. Both were brown skinned, were wearing gloves and had  black t-shirts wrapped around their faces. The suspect who spoke during the commission of the robbery had what has been described as a Caymanian accent.”

Anyone with any information about this crime, or who saw the suspects or the car before of after the crime, should contact George Town CID on 949-4222 or the confidential Crime Stoppers number 800-8477 (TIPS).
