Man Charged for Machete Attack

KIMBERLY, Idaho (AP) – Magic Valley officials are investigating an apparent machete attack on a 52-year-old man. Court records say 38-year-old Martin Hernandez-Vargas of Visalia, Calif., was charged Tuesday with aggravated battery for the weekend attack south of Kimberly. Bail was set at $250,000. Twin Falls County deputies received reports of a disturbance and responded to a vehicle crash south Sunday. Court records say officers found a machete with blood and hair on the blade on the floorboard of a pickup truck they believe Hernandez-Vargas crashed. At about the same time, officers found the victim with traumatic head and face injuries at his nearby residence. He was hospitalized.  Deputies say Hernandez-Vargas told them the victim began making unwanted sexual advances after the two drank beer. Hernandez-Vargas also is charged with DUI.
