2 separate slashings in EverettOctober 3, 2013 @ 10:00 pm
EVERETT, Wash. (AP) - Police are investigating two separate slashing incidents in Everett.
In the first incident Wednesday night, a man who tried to intervene in a fight between two brothers hit one in the face with a machete. He says it was self-defense because one of the brothers hit him with a baseball bat. The injured 20-year-old brother was taken to a Seattle hospital and is expected to recover.
In the second incident, a 20-year-old Everett woman says her ex-boyfriend slashed her across the neck while they were talking outside a grocery store. She was taken to a Seattle hospital and is expected to recover.
Police spokesman Aaron Snell says the man police were seeking in the second case turned himself in Thursday night and was expected to be jailed for investigation of assault.
