Clearlake Man Injures 1 With a Machete

A Clearlake man is facing several charges for stabbing a man with a machete Saturday night, and police say the incident was racially motivated. The victim, a black male, told police 34-year-old Anthony Robert Hammond, had been yelling racial slurs at people located in the parking lot of the Beachfront Apartment complex. He then went into his apartment, got the machete and struck the victim on the shoulder. Hammond is being held in the Lake County Jail on $1 million bail.
