Bicyclist with machete wound arrested

LEBANON, Ore. (AP) — Lebanon police arrested a bleeding man after he fled a hospital emergency room.

The Albany Democrat-Herald reported Friday that 43-year-old Alex Cuberto Jiminez was lodged at the Linn County Jail on a felony parole violation.

According to police logs, Jiminez went to the emergency room after he was suffered a machete wound in a scuffle with a friend.

But Jiminez left the ER without treatment and rode away on a bicycle.

An ambulance was dispatched when three callers reported seeing the bleeding man on a bicycle.

He was taken back to the hospital before heading to jail. He declined to cooperate with police.
