Royal Cayman Islands Police are searching for two men involved in robbing a visitor on Colliers Beach Thursday afternoon.
Police said the victim, a Japanese national, was punched in the face by one of the suspects before he had cash and other items taken from his rental vehicle.
The Colliers area is a fairly remote section of East End located just south of Morritts Resort.
Police said the victim ran to the road after he was assaulted and stopped a passing vehicle for assistance. The vehicle took the victim to Tukka Resaturant, where he reported the crime.
The man described his attackers as between 20 and 30 years old, having dark brown complexions and being between 5’7” and 5’9” tall. No arrests were immediately reported.
The visitor suffered minor injuries to his face and said he didn’t want to be taken to hospital.
Police have asked for witnesses to this incident - in particular the occupants of the unknown vehicle that took the victim to Tukka - to come forward.
It is not known whether the attackers left on foot or by vehicle. The victim’s rental car was a four-door blue Suzuki Swift and was parked at Colliers Beach when the robbery occurred.
