A Chickasha man faces charges after he allegedly cut a man with a machete on Saturday.
Ernie Norman is accused of attacking the victim unprovoked, according to a report from the Grady County Sheriff's Office.
The victim attempted to protect himself with a "bat like" object, however the machete made contact with the victim's hand. The report further states the victim didn't realize his side had been cut by the machete as well.
The victim then barricaded himself in a bedroom until it was safe to flee and drive himself to the hospital where he received stitches, the report said.
Norman faces charges of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.
