A MAN has been charged after allegedly slashing his neighbour's face with a knife following an altercation outside a home.
At 4.25pm on Monday, a man, aged 28, became involved in a verbal altercation with two women in the front yard of a home on Clarence Street in Junee, before the man allegedly punched one of the women in the head.
Another man, aged 43, exited a nearby house, allegedly armed with a knife, and approached the man, before they became involved in a physical confrontation.
During the struggle, the younger man sustained a cut to his face.
Both men then began wrestling and punching one another before the older man and two women walked back to their home and the younger man returned to his neighbouring property.
Shortly after, the younger man allegedly armed himself with a knife and metal pole and smashed two windows of the neighbour's house. He then walked to a vehicle parked on the neighbour's property and allegedly smashed the front and rear windscreens and damaged a side mirror.
