A man was arrested on charges of assault after allegedly cutting a woman’s hand with a machete because she used Pine-Sol to clean her home, police in Oregon said.

Portland Police said that they arrested 51-year-old Clemente Banuelos-Delgado, after he was accused of cutting the 32-year-old woman because he was upset about her use of Pine-Sol.

Police said that the attack left the woman’s arm dangling.

A witness at the scene said that Banuelos-Delgado and the woman had been drinking vodka in his backyard just before the attack.

The woman told police that she was sitting in a chair in the driveway of the house when she saw Banuelos-Delgado go to his car and come back with a machete.

He swung it around while shouting that he would kill her. She was injured when she raised her arm to block the blow. Banuelos-Delgado was booked into the Multnomah County jail.
