Marathon – A Marathon man is in jail, charged with cutting another man with a hatchet.
Witnesses say 32 year old Maykel Borges had been coming to their trailer in Trailerama Trailer Park on 15th Street all day Friday asking for beer. They said they gave him several beers during the course of the day, but when they told him the last time to go away and leave them alone, he left, then returned with a hatchet. He reportedly began arguing with people at the trailer, then swung the hatchet at one man, cutting him on the side with it. Borges then dropped the weapon and left the scene.
When deputies arrived just after 6 p.m., they recovered the hatchet and found Borges at his own trailer, not far away. He was arrested, charged with aggravated assault and aggravated battery, and he was booked into jail. The victim was transported to Fishermen’s Hospital for treatment of a small cut on his side.
