Men dressed as construction workers rob courier driver at gunpoint

In release moments ago, the Royal Cayman Island Police Service (RCIPS) confirmed that at  around 12:30PM on Friday officers responded to a report of an armed robbery of a courier near BritCay on Eastern Avenue.

Reports are that during the ordeal the courier had been held at gunpoint and his bag taken.

The courier had initially struggled with an armed man who had approached him and brandished a firearm, but ceased struggling when a second man approached.

Both men were dressed in construction gear – wearing hard hats and reflective vests – and made off with the bag across Eastern Avenue and down Bodden Road.

No shots were fired and no one was injured.  

Under $3000 was taken.
