Two men were injured Tuesday afternoon after a verbal altercation turned into an aggravated assault, an official said on Wednesday.

Killeen police were dispatched at approximately 2:55 p.m. to the 200 block of Hold Street in reference to a 911 call about a disturbance, said Ofelia Miramontez, Killeen Police Department spokeswoman.

“Upon the officers arrival, they were told that several male subjects were in a verbal altercation that turned physical and a that machete was displayed,” Miramontez.

Two men sustained minor injuries and the third man left the scene prior to officers’ arrival. The victims refused medical treatment and transport, she said.
