5 people hurt in machete attack 1 under arrest
SHARON, Mass. (AP) — Police say five people were injured when they were attacked by a woman armed with a foot-long serrated machete in a Massachusetts hotel parking lot.
Sharon police say what started as a heated argument outside the hotel at about 1:30 a.m. Sunday turned violent.
Deputy Chief Don Brewer tells The Patriot-Ledger two male victims with serious injuries remain hospitalized. Three others were treated and released. He says some of the victims appeared to be from New York visiting Massachusetts for a wedding.
Police arrested 34-year-old Allison Maitland, of Hanson. She faces arraignment Monday on charges including assault and battery with a dangerous weapon causing serious bodily injury.
It wasn’t clear if she has an attorney.
Police called it an isolated incident and there is no threat to public safety.
