Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer was uninjured after being robbed by a machete-wielding intruder last week, according to the Associated Press.


The 73-year-old justice, his wife Joanna and a friend were on vacation in the Caribbean island of Nevis when the incident occurred. The intruder took about $1,000 in cash and fled. He has not been apprehended.

The FBI and local authorities are investigating the incident.

Breyer was appointed by then-President Bill Clinton in 1994 and tends to side with the liberal half of the Supreme Court.
