A man is accused of slashing his neighbour's face with a knife during a street brawl in the NSW Riverina region.
Police say the altercation began on Monday afternoon when a 28-year-old man had a verbal stoush with two women in the front yard of a home in Junee before the man punched one of the women in the head.
That's when a 43-year-old man allegedly emerged from a nearby house with a knife and confronted the man, leading to a physical confrontation.
Both men began wrestling and punching each other before the younger man suffered a cut to his face and everyone returned to their homes.
Shortly after, the 28-year-old allegedly armed himself with a knife and metal pole and smashed two windows of his neighbour's house.
Police say he then walked to a car parked on the neighbour's property and smashed the front and rear windscreens and damaged a side mirror.
Police were called and arrested the 43-year-old man while the younger man was taken to Wagga Wagga hospital for treatment to his face.
The older man was charged with reckless wounding, being armed with intent to commit an indictable offence, and affray.
He was granted conditional bail to appear in Junee Local Court on November 6.
