The man was treated at the scene by EMT personnel then transported to hospital.
Unconfirmed reports are that the incident stemmed from an argument over a female.
An eyewitness described the man’s injuries: “He got chopped in the palm of his hand. Just the skin on the back of his hand holding it. And he got a lash of stone on his forehead and one on his back, then he got chopped whilst on the ground.”
The perpetrator was reportedly detained by police.
