A man was hospitalized early Tuesday morning after an unknown man slashed his right wrist with a machete near 10th and G streets at about 1 a.m., according to Lincoln police. 

LPD Sgt. Chris Vigil said the 56-year-old man and his friend were sitting on a sidewalk in the area when the slasher approached them, yelling and swearing at them before producing a machete. 

Swinging the machete, the man cut the victim on his wrist, left leg and back, according to police. The friend called police and convinced the suspect to leave the area, Vigil said. 

Neither person recognized the suspect. An investigation is ongoing.
