Machete used in fight

A 50-year-old Chase area man was airlifted to hospital in Kamloops after suffering a severe cut to his hand in a fight.

Police were called to an area near Adams Lake in the afternoon of April 17. When they arrived they found the 50-year-old man with his wound. 

He was flown to Royal Inland Hospital where he underwent surgery for his injuries.

The other man in the fight, a 44-year-old, also from the Chase area initially fled the scene.

Police learned that during the fight the suspect that ran allegedly used a machete-style knife and struck the victim causing the injury. 

The suspect later turned himself in. 

Chase RCMP is recommending charges of aggravated assault, possession of a weapon for dangerous purposes and mischief.

The two men are casual acquaintances. RCMP don't know the motive for the fight but know that alcohol was a factor.
