Man charged with attacking brother with machete


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- A man is in jail after Wilmington Police say he attacked his brother with a machete over the weekend.

Police say around 12:45 a.m. Saturday they responded to Antonio Andre Fullwood, 37, bleeding on Dawson Street. He told officers his brother Berman Rakim Davis Jr., 39, had attacked him.

Investigators say Fullwood had gone to his brother's house, where a fight broke out. When the fight ended, they say Davis went inside his apartment, got his machete and attacked Fullwood.

Fullwood had a cut on his left arm, which was also broken.

Davis is charged with assault with a deadly weapon. The Department of Corrections website shows his record includes convictions for assault by strangulation, assault on a female and receiving stolen goods. He was sentenced to probation for those crimes.
