"He does have a couple of gashes that'll need some stitches, but some of them are superficial, so he was very lucky," said Lt. Larry Bowlan. "After the incident the male suspect and his girlfriend left the scene and again a short time later, approximately 20-30 minutes later they walked back up on (the) scene and wanted to provide their side of the story."

Police arrested the 19-year-old for assault with a deadly weapon.
