Sheriff: Man threatens pet owner with machete in Marin County

MARIN COUNTY (KRON) — A man threatening a pet owner with a machete was arrested in Marin County on Thursday.

According to the sheriff’s office, the incident occurred Thursday morning in a small town off Highway 1 called Dogtown.

A man driving with his sick dog pulled over on the side of the road to let his pet relieve himself, deputies said.

An area resident saw this and must have gotten upset, grabbing a 24-inch black metal machete, authorities said.

The resident allegedly walked aggressively toward the man and his dog, swinging the weapon in the air.

Information given by the victim led police to find the man and they arrested him for assault with a deadly weapon.
