Police are investigating a report where a Tobago teen was chopped and attacked with a Taser.

The victim is said to be a 19-year-old teenager from Canaan, Tobago.

The incident took place around 4.30 pm on Sunday along Pigeon Point Road, Crown Point.

The victim told police that he was walking along the roadway when a black CS3  Mitsubishi Lancer pulled up alongside him.

Two men exited the car and confronted the 19-year-old about money they said he had allegedly stolen.

The teenager denied the allegations and attempted to clarify the situation, however, he was attacked.

One of the men was armed with a cutlass, while the other was armed with a Taser.

The 19-year-old was shocked and chopped to his left hand.

The suspects then returned to the car and fled the scene.

The injured man notified the police and paramedics and a team of officers led by W/Cpl Webster visited the scene.

The victim was taken to the Scarborough General Hospital where he was treated.

More on this as it becomes available.
