A man was cut with a machete in Edgemere and another shot after being robbed in Dundalk on Friday, Baltimore County police said.
The man who was injured in the machete attack is expected to survive but police said he had a "severe injury" to his arm and was taken to a hospital for treatment and surgery. Police said the incident happened around 6:45 p.m. in the parking lot of a Food Lion in the 7500 block of North Point Road. Two men were arrested and charged with first degree assault in connection with the attack, though they were not identified by police pending a bail hearing Saturday afternoon.
