Woman escapes attacker on South Sound road

 A woman sustained minor bruises on Tuesday after she was approached by a man while along walking South Sound Road at about 11:45PM.

Reports from the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS) are that the woman was walking along the roadway when a man grabbed her and demanded her handbag.

The woman threw the handbag down and struggled with the man, who attempted to pull her into some nearby bushes.

She shouted for help and the man then grabbed the handbag, ran into the bushes and disappeared. 

The culprit is described as about 5’8” in height, of slim build and dark complexion, with a t-shirt wrapped around his face and wearing boots and plaid shorts.
