A judge has sentenced a Lincoln man to four to six years in prison for attacking another man with a machete.

Juan Cruz will serve time for the January 1st attack that sent his victim to the hospital with several injuries, including to his head.

Cruz pleaded guilty in October to second-degree assault. Police say Cruz broke into the victim's apartment and attacked him with a two-foot machete. The victim used a hammer to fight back.

The attack may have been over a woman.
