At this point, the suspect whipped out a machete and started chopping and stabbing Chand before fleeing the scene.
The young man was rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital, where he received treatment for his injuries. His family is now pleading with anyone who can identify the suspect to contact the nearest police station.
