Police say man attacks two neighbors with machete in Flagami neighbors dispute
MIAMI – A man appeared in a Miami-Dade County court on Wednesday after detectives accused him of attacking two men with a machete during a dispute between neighbors in Miami’s Flagami neighborhood.
Endy Gomez left the scene before the police arrived. According to the arrest report, a detective arrested the fugitive Tuesday near the intersection of Northwest 11 Avenue and 55 Street in Miami’s Liberty City neighborhood.
Gomez, who turns 43 on Thursday, brandished a machete while pursuing two of his neighbors in the area of West Flagler Street and Southwest 63 Court on January 27, according to police.
One of the victims suffered multiple lacerations on his left arm, left abdomen and right leg. According to police, the Miami Fire Rescue took him to Jackson West Medical Center
A witness told a detective on February 21 that the injured man was trying to disarm the attacker when Gonzalez’s wife intervened and took the machete from him so he couldn’t hurt anyone, police said.
Gomez faces two counts of attempted murder with a deadly weapon. His Miami-Dade County criminal record includes a 2021 battery arrest.
Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Mindy S. Glazer ordered him to stay away from the victims, and he was released on $32,500 bail on Wednesday.
