According to a Guyana Police Force statement, he was attacked around 10 pm at his home.

The statement note, that the businessman’s wife, 44, has since been taken into police custody for questioning. “…the victim and his wife were at home when three masked unidentifiable men armed with a small hand gun, a metal bar and cutlass barged into their home and one of the suspects dealt the victim several chops to his head causing him to receive injuries,” the statement explained.

The three men reportedly demanded cash, however, after the deceased said they did not have any, the suspects then chopped the man and escaped.
