By-Stander Stops Machete Wielding Man from Hurting Horrified Homeowner
SAN ANGELO, TX -- A man was arrested Monday after he tried to attack a woman with a machete.
According to the affidavit signed by Fred Buck, on October 14, officers with the San Angelo Police Department were dispatched to the 2200 block of Junius for the report of a possible aggravated assault.
When officers arrived, they met with the homeowner and a witness who helped stop the attack.
The affidavit states that the homeowner had let Reginald Felton, 45, stay at her house for a few days until they got into a verbal argument.
During the argument she told Felton that he needed to leave the house. This is when Felton grabbed a machete, began swinging it, and then threatening to kill the woman.
Police say a by-stander saw what was going on and jumped in to try and help the woman.
The two struggled but eventually the by-stander disarmed Felton. The two were treated to cuts on their hands from the knife during the fight.
Felton was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He is currently in the Tom Green County Jail and his bond is set at $25,000.
