An Arima businessman is dead following a brutal home invasion on Friday morning,

Dead is Richard Ramkissoon, owner of Superstore in Arima and a father of two.

Reports state that at around 3 am, Ramkisson, his girlfriend, and two children were asleep at their Mausica home when six men armed with guns, knives and a cutlass entered the house by removing the galvanize.

They announced a hold-up and proceeded to tie up the family and beat them.
