A MAN has been arrested following a machete attack in Darfield.

We Are Barnsley first reported this story last week when many of you asked us about the strong police presence in the area.

Police received reports of an attack in a Darfield property Wednesday and believe two men set upon a 21-year-old man with a machete-type weapon, in what is being treated as a targeted attack.

Officers confirmed the victim sustained serious injuries and was taken to hospital where his condition is not thought to be life-threatening.

A police crime scene was set up on College Terrace on Wednesday, with residents reporting a trail of blood leading to West Street, where the victim is believed to have walked to before an ambulance was called.
