NEWBERG, Ore. (AP) — Newberg-Dundee police have arrested a man accused of assaulting a roommate with a machete.

Capt. Jeff Kosmicki says 25-year-old Noah Norton turned himself in at noon Saturday. He was booked into jail on charges of menacing, second-degree assault and unlawful use of a weapon.

Authorities had been searching for Norton since early Saturday, when someone at a Newberg home reported that Norton was drunk and threatening a roommate with the weapon.

Norton left before officers arrived. The victim was treated at a hospital for a hand injury and released.
