A police sergeant was beaten, tied up and robbed of several items, including his gun, by two assailants at his Gasparillo home on Monday night. Kassieram Lutchman, 53, who is on vacation leave was attacked after he put out his garbage and walked back into his yard around 10 pm.

Two unmasked men, one armed with a knife, followed him into the yard and forced him into his house. The assailants began beating him. They then robbed him of a $5,500 Smith and Wesson M&P pistol loaded with eight rounds of ammunition, a wallet containing $700 and personal documents, two Samsung cell phones totaling $2,700, a pair of police tactical booths valued at $300, a $400 pair of handcuffs, a $300 flash light and keys for his Nissan March.

They tied him up and escaped through the front door. He lives alone, police said. Officers of the Crime Scene Investigation team processed the scene and workable prints were found. An ambulance took Lutchman to the San Fernando General Hospital where he was treated and discharged. Ag Insp Santlal of the Gasparillo Police Station is investigating.
