UPDATE: Tuesday, August 20, 2013
A man and woman are hospitalized after being stabbed with a machete last night in West Wichita.
It happened shortly before 10 p.m. Monday at an apartment complex in the 2600 block of West 9th Street near McLean.
Police say a 57-year-old resident of the apartment threw trash onto a neighbor's balcony. That neighbor, a 23-year-old woman, then reportedly grabbed a machete and confronted the man.
Officers believe the man ended up taking the machete away from the woman, stabbing her and another 56-year-old man who tried to intervene. Both are expected to recover.
The 57-year-old man was arrested, and the woman could also face charges. The names of the suspect and victims have not yet been released.
