A security guard refused to hand over a cash bag to an armed thief who escaped empty handed.

The guard was leaving Fosters Food Fair in Countryside Shopping Centre, Savannah, around 7.30pm Friday.

A man approached with what appeared to be a handgun and demanded the guard give up the cash bag.

A spokesman for the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service said: “A struggle ensued, the offender failing in his attempt to steal the cash bag ran off empty handed towards Hirst Road.

“The guard was shaken in the attack but not physically injured. Police officers immediately attended the scene and commenced a search of the area for the offender, without trace.”

Police say the suspect is around five foot nine inches tall and of medium build. He had light brown skin and aged somewhere in his mid forties. He was wearing blue jeans, a black t-shirt and a black baseball cap.

The police spokesman added: “No arrests have been made at this time. No shots were fired and no reported injuries.

“Anyone who was in the area at the relevant time and has information which could assist the police is asked to contact Bodden Town Police Station on 947 2220/40, the RCIPS Tip-Line 949-7777 or the Confidential Crime Stoppers number 800-8477 (TIPS).”
