Man arrested for allegedly stabbing two people with machete

By Krista Hostetler. CREATED Aug 4, 2014

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Las Vegas police have announced the arrest of a man in connection with a machete attack last week.

Police said Jerry Jackson stabbed two people at an apartment on Jimmy Durante Boulevard, near Harmon on July 31.

They said Jackson got into an altercation with his girlfriend, as well as her daughter's boyfriend, and ended up cutting both of them with some kind of machete sword.

By the time offers arrived, Jackson had left.

On Friday, police were tipped off that he was at the Stratosphere hotel-casino. That's where they found Jackson and arrested him without incident.
