I need to assign permissions to a particular list item using client object model in JavaScript.Say for 5th item by id I want to assign contribute permission to a particular group.

I have previously done this using c# object model like below. I have below c# code which can break role inheritance then assign permission.

private static void RemoveAllPermissions(SPListItem CurrentlistItem)
{

    CurrentlistItem.BreakRoleInheritance(true);       
    SPRoleAssignmentCollection SPRoleAssColn = CurrentlistItem.RoleAssignments;
    for (int i = SPRoleAssColn.Count - 1; i >=0 ; i--)
    {
        SPRoleAssColn.Remove(i);
    }
    Console.WriteLine("All Permissions Removed");
}

Then for granting permission

private static void GrantPermission(SPListItem CurrentListItem, SPWeb oSPWeb, SPRoleType SPRoleType, SPPrincipal SPPrincipal)
{

    SPRoleDefinition oSPRoleDefinition = oSPWeb.RoleDefinitions.GetByType(SPRoleType);       
     SPRoleAssignment oSPRoleAssignment = new SPRoleAssignment(SPPrincipal);         
     oSPRoleAssignment.RoleDefinitionBindings.Add(oSPRoleDefinition);         
     CurrentListItem.RoleAssignments.Add(oSPRoleAssignment);        
     CurrentListItem.Update();             
}

My question is how can this achieved by using JSOM or rest ?(any one is fine).I am using SP 2013.Any help is appreciated.

Thanks to msdn documentation it is achievable and like below for my case.

    var siteUrl = '/sites/MySiteCollection';

function breakSecurityInheritanceChangeUser() {    
    var clientContext = new SP.ClientContext(siteUrl);
    var oList = clientContext.get_web().get_lists().getByTitle('MyList');    
    var itemId = 5;
    this.oListItem = oList.get_items().getById(itemId);    
    oListItem.breakRoleInheritance(true);    
    this.oUser = clientContext.get_web().get_siteUsers().getByLoginName('DOMAIN\\alias');    
    oListItem.get_roleAssignments().getByPrincipal(oUser).deleteObject();    
    var collRoleDefinitionBinding = SP.RoleDefinitionBindingCollection.newObject(clientContext);

    collRoleDefinitionBinding.add(clientContext.get_web().get_roleDefinitions().getByType(SP.RoleType.administrator));

    oListItem.get_roleAssignments().add(oUser, collRoleDefinitionBinding);    
    clientContext.load(oUser);
    clientContext.load(oListItem);        

    clientContext.executeQueryAsync(Function.createDelegate(this, this.Success), Function.createDelegate(this, this.Failure));
}

function Success(sender, args) {    
    alert('Role inheritance broken for item ' + 
        this.oListItem.get_item('Title') + 
        ' and new role assignment for ' + 
        this.oUser.get_loginName());
}

function Failure(sender, args) {    
    alert('Request failed. ' + args.get_message() + '\n' + args.get_stackTrace());
}
