Gadsden- Gadsden man faces charges of robbery and assault after he allegedly stabbed another man with a machete.

Etowah County Sheriff Jonathon Horton said deputies responded to a call Wednesday morning to U.S. 411 North, just outside the Gadsden city limits, where a camper is located off the roadway for a man in the road who was covered in blood.

The victim told deputies he had been attacked by a man with a machete.

Witnesses provided additional information, which led deputies to a person of interest within 30 minutes of arriving on the scene, Horton said.
