Man Stopped With Machete

A man was cut with a machete after police say he tried to force his way into a home Monday night.

It happened around 9 Monday. Police say 27 year old David Everly attempted to enter a home in the 1800 of Lawson. Reports state he kicked the door in so that he could confront the  homeowner about some missing property.

Police say the homeowner then cut the suspect with a machete in defense. Officers stopped Everly as he left the scene. They arrested him and took him to the hospital to receive treatment for his injuries.

They have now booked him into the Potter County Jail on charges of burglary and assault.
