Machete, pipe used to terrorize Nebraska man hiding in bathroom, according to police

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — A man told the Grand Island Police Department that he feared for his life after his apartment was attacked on Monday.

It started at 7:10 p.m. near North Vine and East 9th Streets.

The man said Ariel Oliva Garrido was beating on his apartment unit’s front door with a machete and yelling for him to come outside.

That’s when the victim ran to his bathroom and hid while calling authorities.  He says a different banging noise began at that point.

Police said officers arrived to find Garrido walking away from the victim’s vehicle with a metal pipe.

The headlights had been smashed, and the front door also sustained damage, GIPD said.

Officers say Garrido admitted to causing the destruction and was arrested.

He’s charged with terroristic threats, use of a deadly weapon to commit a felony and criminal mischief.
