Within minutes of the attack, Kasiya Rodney arrived at the Emergency Department of the Port of Spain General Hospital where he received treatment immediately.
The limb was successfully reattached during surgery, police were told.
Officers of the Morvant CID arrested a suspect near the crime scene.

The suspect allegedly dealt Rodney several chops, one of which almost severed the left wrist.
Rodney ran off and got into his car.
He remains warded at hospital.
The suspect was taken to the Morvant Police Station where he was expected to be charged with wounding with intent, and appear in court this week.
