Richland County Sheriff's deputies have charged a man with attempted murder after they say he tried to attack another man with a machete.

Deputies were called to the 300 block of Crane Creek Dr. just before 2:30 a.m. Saturday for a report of two men fighting.

Investigators say 32-year-old Juan Angel Tabora got into a fight with another man and beat him.  The victim escaped into another room and locked the door.

Deputies say Tabora grabbed a machete and tried to force his way into the room by hacking at the door.

The victim was treated at the hospital and released.

Tabora was taken to Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center where he is being held.
