Based on information received, the victim and his family were asleep at the time that the three men broke into their home.
However, the victim, Jimmie Mohabir reportedly said that he was awakened by a noise outside of his bedroom and upon checking, he came face to face with one of the bandits.
Mohabir reportedly put up a fight, but the suspect, who was reportedly armed with a knife, managed to cut him along the left side of his face.
The perpetrators then fled the scene with $700,000 in gold jewellery and $350,000 in cash.
Investigations are ongoing.
