His house was robbed of $8,000 worth of things, and the property’s caretaker, Philip Pierre had a knife held to his throat was beaten and left in a pool of blood wrapped in duct tape.

Tribune 242 reports that the robbers broke into the house, at Cable Beach, by sawing through the chains on the front gate of a home on the property that was being used as a site office and storage facility for the guest house. Thankfully the property manager, Charles Beall, said that many of his employees canvassed the island and were able to find two of the gang that broke in, as well as $5,000 worth of stolen property. Steve Harris had no comment on the goings-on.
