HOUMA - Police arrested a man after they said he used a machete to attack another man Tuesday, partially severing one of the victim's fingers.

Investigators say Dionisio Ramos, 44, allegedly lashed out with a machete when the victim visited the home of Ramos's ex-girlfriend in Terrebonne Parish.

Deputies found the 33-year-old victim with his pinky partially detached from his hand.

Authorities found Ramos at his home, where investigators said he admitted to confronting the victim. Deputies said they also found the machete used in the attack in the suspect's vehicle.

Officials booked Ramos into the Terrebonne Parish Jail and charged him with aggravated second battery.
