Harris County Sheriff Department

A man was injured in a machete assault Tuesday in the 13400 block of Cedar Bayou Lynchburg Road.

The Harris County Sheriff’s Office said deputies responded about 7:30 a.m. to a call about a stolen trailer. After allegedly stealing the trailer, the two men involved crashed a car, got into a fight, during which one cut the other with a machete.

Life Flight was called, and the injured man was taken to the hospital. The other one led deputies on a chase around the Crosby area and west of the San Jacinto River. The Sheriff’s Office did not identify either man, and has not said if the suspect who fled was caught.
