The 20-year-old and a friend told deputies that a stranger, identified by investigators as Kenneth Spidell, approached them, grabbed the victim and held up a machete before threatening to sever his foot, Wagner said.
The two friends ran and called 911.
Deputies arrived and arrested Spidell on suspicion of terroristic threats and use of a weapon to commit a felony, the sheriff said.
