MCGRATH, Alaska (AP) - A McGrath man suspected of hitting another man with a machete has been charged with felony assault.
Alaska State Troopers say 29-year-old John Lindeman Jr. was arrested for an incident that occurred early New Year’s Day.
A village public safety officer took a report that a man from Anchorage attended a party at Lindeman’s home and was assaulted.
An Alaska Wildlife State Trooper determined Lindeman hosted a bonfire and outdoor drinking party and that the Anchorage man was struck on the forearm and hand at about 4 a.m.
The injured man was treated and released at the McGrath Clinic.
Lindeman was jailed in Bethel.
McGrath is a community of 320 about 221 miles northwest of Anchorage.
