(ABC 6 News) -- The Dodge County Sheriff's Office said two men have been arrested for assaulting another man with a machete.

According to Sheriff Scott Rose, deputies were called to the 100 block of 1st Ave. NE in Hayfield for a possible fight.


Two men said they were drinking, got a ride home from someone they did not know.  Authorities say the unknown driver tried to rob them but they fought him off.

Less than 10 minutes later, a 911 call came about a man bleeding a few blocks away.  Deputies arrived and found the man standing in pooling blood with a deep cut on his face and head.

He told law enforcement he was assaulted by two men with a machete.  Deputies found the machete in the suspect's apartment.

The sheriff's office is not releasing the names of the suspects until charges are filed, which is expected to happen Thursday morning.
