OMAHA — An Omaha man was jailed after allegedly attacking his ex-girlfriend's new boyfriend with a hatchet.

The incident happened early Saturday. Police say a 50-year-old man shattered the rear sliding glass door to break into an apartment, where he tried to strangle his former girlfriend.

When the new boyfriend tried to intervene, the man allegedly struck him with a hatchet. The wounded man was taken to a hospital, but his injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

The ex-boyfriend is jailed on suspicion of burglary, strangulation, misdemeanor assault, second-degree felony assault and use of a weapon to commit a felony.
