Two people were injured during a domestic dispute at about 2:20 pm on Monday, August 10, Ansonia, Connecticut. A woman was assaulted with a box cutter and a machete by her boyfriend, named locally as Mario Forbes.

When another man tried to intervene, by grabbing his machete, Forbes attacked him with the box cutter. The man sustained a serious neck injury and the woman suffered a head injury. Both were treated at separate hospitals and were later discharged.

Forbes was arrested at the scene on suspicion of first-degree assault, third-degree assault, third-degree strangulation, first-degree reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct and was being held on $150,000 bail. He was due to appear before a court in Derby on Tuesday.
