Associated Press Release

ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) -- Authorities say a homeless man faces charges in a Washington, D.C., suburb after they say he struck two people with a machete.

Arlington County police say two people were standing outside the Central Library about 2:50 a.m. Monday when a man approached and began arguing with them. Authorities say the man brandished a machete and struck both victims several times.

Police say both victims suffered significant injuries, but they were not considered to be life-threatening. They are being treated at a Washington hospital.

An arrest was made several hours later. Twenty-eight-year-old Derrick Sutherland has been charged with two counts of aggravated malicious wounding. He is being held without bond.
