Rooftop protest at school


Pin It

A disgruntled construction worker staged a one-man rooftop protest sparking a police operation.

The man climbed on top of a two storey building in Bodden Town and refused to come down.

Police say reports that he threatened to torch the school were way off the mark and no accelerant was found.

Officers stressed that during the standoff there were no children in the area as the school was closed for half-term break.

Detective Superintendent Marlon Bodden said: “When we arrived it was clearly a dispute between an employee and employer
over payment.

“We were only there to ensure the welfare and safety of the man who eventually came off the roof after about an hour.

“Officers did not discover any form of accelerant on him and it did not warrant an arrest.

“There was no damage to either himself or the property and there was no suggestion that this man climbed on the roof to either harm himself or others.”

Meanwhile the RCIPS have now confirmed that officers are looking for two men in connection with the robbery at the China Village, Venezia Plaza, North Sound Road, George Town.

The first suspect is described as being 6’1”in height, armed with what appeared to be a handgun.

He was wearing black clothing, a mask and yellow gloves. He spoke with a Caymanian accent.

The other is described as being shorter that the first suspect. He was wearing black clothing, a black coat of silk appearance and a handkerchief mask.

Police have also confirmed that two men were arrested shortly after the robbery. They were arrested on suspicion of robbery. They have since been released on police bail while enquiries are ongoing.

No shots were fired and no-one has been injured.
