(CMR) In what could be described as a peculiar robbery a man attempted to rob Reflections Food 4 Less with a toy gun on Thursday.
Reports from the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS) are that at around 6:30 am, a masked man entered Reflections Food 4 Less, brandishing what appeared to be a firearm, and demanded cash from the cashier.
A struggle ensued, during which the cashier was able to grab the firearm from the suspect, at which point it became clear that the firearm was plastic. The suspect then fled the scene.
