    Man slashed three with machete: Police

    PATCHOGUE, NEW YORK (AP) – A Long Island man is facing assault and weapons charges for allegedly attacking three people with a machete at a sporting goods store.

    Suffolk County police said on Saturday that the attack occurred the previous afternoon at a Dick’s Sporting Goods store in Patchogue.

    Treyvius Tunstall allegedly asked to buy rifles but walked away after he was asked to provide identification. According to police, he then slashed a store manager with a machete and attacked two other people as he fled.

    The store manager suffered wounds to the torso, arms and head, Suffolk County Police Commissioner Rodney Harrison said on Saturday.

    The manager was treated at the scene by paramedics and taken to a hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

    A customer was struck in the head by the back of the machete and a person in the parking lot was cut on the arm and shoulder, according to police. Both victims were treated at the scene.

    Police apprehended Tunstall nearby. Through his court-appointed attorney, the 22-year-old West Babylon resident pleaded not guilty at a court appearance on Saturday to three counts of assault and six weapons counts, and was ordered held on USD400,000 cash bail or USD800,000 bond.
