Man allegedly slashed with machete after argument at petrol station


A man has been charged after he allegedly slashed another man with a machete after they had an argument in the NSW Northern Tablelands.

Two men, aged 30 and 33, are said to have argued at an Armidale petrol station in the early hours of Sunday morning before leaving in separate vehicles.

It is alleged the 33-year-old then went to the other man’s house a short while later where the 30-year-old opened the door and struck him with a machete, cutting him on the throat.
