Police: Lincoln Man Attacked With Machete

McCoubrey, Stringfield

LINCOLN (KFSM) — Lincoln police have arrested two men accused of attacking another man with a machete last week, causing lacerations to his head, face and back.

Donald Stringfield, 29, and Jason McCoubrey, 24, were arrested in connection with first-degree battery — a Class B felony.

The victim told police Stringfield and McCoubrey on Thursday (Jan. 18) came to his girlfriend’s home on Central Street with machetes and threatened to kill him, according to a preliminary arrest report.

The man said Stringfield and McCoubrey chased him through the house, where they eventually cornered and attacked him. He managed to escape to a neighbor’s house and call police.

Police noted the victim had a two-inch gash on his head down to his skull, lacerations on his back and face, and that his face was swollen in knots, according to the report.

An immediate update on the man’s condition wasn’t available Wednesday (Jan. 24).

Stringfield and McCoubrey were being held Wednesday at the Washington County Detention Center on $5,000 bonds.

In Arkansas, Class B felonies are punishable by up to 20 years in prison and a maximum fine of $15,000.
