An altercation in Albury on Sunday has allegedly led to a machete attack.
NSW Police say about 8pm on Sunday, a group of men were socialising at a unit on Olive Street.
Police will allege in court a fight broke out, and that a 53-year-old man struck a 45-year-old man with a machete a number of times.
The younger man sustained lacerations and a fracture to his arm and went to a nearby residence for help.
The 45-year-old man was treated at the scene by NSW Ambulance paramedics before being taken to Albury Hospital.
The 53-year-old man fled the scene on foot, and was found by Murray River Police District officers at about 10.45 pm, hiding in a nearby unit.
He was arrested and taken to hospital for monitoring due to his level of intoxication and for treatment to his hand.
The 53-year-old man was later charged with wound person with intent to cause grievous bodily harm, and use offensive weapon with intent to commit indictable offence.
He was refused bail and is due to face Albury Local Court today.
Inquiries are continuing.
