ROCKINGHAM — Police have arrested a man accused of using a machete in a late March assault.
Larry Allen Ingram, 36, of Lakeview Trail, Rockingham, struck another man on the arm and knee with a machete on March 28, according to an arrest warrant.
The warrant was issued April 21, charging Ingram with a misdemeanor count of assault with a deadly weapon.
Ingram was arrested May 14 and booked into the Richmond County Jail under a $5,000 secured bond. He was still in jail as of Wednesday evening.
Online court records show Ingram has no other pending charges.
Ingram was sentenced to 20 months of probation in February after being convicted on a felony charge of possession of a Schedule II controlled substance, according to the N.C. Department of Public Safety Division of Adult Correction.
In 2012, he was convicted of misdemeanor larceny and resisting an officer. His first conviction, in 1999, was also for misdemeanor larceny.
Ingram has also been convicted on charges of simple assault or affray, driving while impaired and driving while license revoked, which are all misdemeanors.
