POLICE: Man Slashed By Machete In Argument With Roommates

Wilmington police were called to Morgan Street Saturday night shortly before midnight and found a man who had been slashed in the head with a machete.

Police say a preliminary investigation shows "the victim had been in an argument with roommates, and one of the other men grabbed a machete and hit the victim on the head."

The victim was taken to the New Hanover County Regional Medical Center for treatment, and police say he is expected to survive.

No arrests have been made. Police say additional information will be available Monday.

    Ok, we need to draft machete control legislation immediately. No one can buy a machete without a 7 day waiting period and a permit...

    To be fair, a lot of people are using a larger version of a Gurkha as a machete. I'd like to get one myself.

    This picture with this story is not a machete. It's a Gurkha knife.

    This is probably a setup. It's just Hollywood promoting that new Danny Trejo flick "Machete".
