WASHINGTON (AP) - A Supreme Court spokeswoman says Justice Stephen Breyer was robbed last week by a machete-wielding intruder at his vacation home in the West Indies.

Spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said Breyer, wife Joanna and guests were confronted by the robber around 9 p.m. Thursday in the home Breyer owns on the Caribbean island of Nevis.

Arberg said the intruder took about $1,000 in cash and no one was hurt. She said the robbery was reported to local authorities, but she did not know if an arrest has been made.
