A disagreement between two teens resulted in one hitting the other with a machete on Sunday afternoon.

Abbotsford Police Const. Ian MacDonald said the dispute between the the 16- and 17-year-olds boys began over repairs to an all-terrain vehicle they had been riding the day before on a property in the 5000 block of Lefeuvre Road.

The vehicle broke down, and the owner wanted to know who was responsible for the repairs. The teens were arguing over the issue in an outbuilding on the property, and the younger boy swung a machete, first hitting a wall and then striking the hand of the 17-year-old, MacDonald said.

The boy was treated in hospital for a three-inch gash to the top of his hand. The 16-year-old was found by police on a property in the 1600 block of Bradner Road.

He now faces charges of assault with a weapon.
