NORWAY, Maine — A local man was arrested late Tuesday night and charged with attacking someone with a machete.

According to police, Antonio Marcel Moore, 25, of 73 Beal St. was arrested at 11:30 p.m. on Hayden Avenue.

Oxford County Assistant District Attorney Richard R. Beauchesne said the DA’s office charged Moore with two counts of aggravated assault and one count of aggravated criminal trespass. No details of the assault or injuries were released by Beauchesne or Norway police. Beauchesne confirmed that a machete was involved in the attack.

Moore is being held at the Oxford County Jail in Paris on $5,000 cash bail, $50,000 surety or pending a Maine pretrial contract. The contract sets the terms for his release, pending his arraignment in 11th District Court in Paris.

The assault remains under investigation.
