Justice Stephen G. Breyer

BULLETIN: The St. Kitts Nevis Observer is reporting that U.S. Associate Justice Stephen Breyer was robbed last week by a masked intruder wielding a machete. (See report.)

Breyer, 73, is one of nine members of the U.S. Supreme Court and has served the nation in that capacity since being appointed by President Clinton in 1994.

The robbery occurred while the justice was vacationing in Nevis with his wife and several friends, and the FBI has dispatched an agent, the newspaper reported.

Nevis is an island of the West Indies chain in the Caribbean.

The Supreme Court has confirmed the incident to the Washington Post, and CNN is reporting that it was unclear whether the intruder knew Breyer’s professional identity.

Also unclear is the level of security provided the justice during his family vacation.
