WICHITA, Kansas — Wichita police are investigating after a man says his wife pulled a machete on him.

It happened in the 2600 block of East Harry Sunday afternoon.

Police say a husband and wife were arguing over house cleaning.

That’s when the victim says his wife pulled a machete on him.

“The female half stated that in fact she was trying to clean up the house when she picked up the machete to show him that was what was creating some of the clutter,” said Lt. Doug Nolte, Wichita Police Department.

The woman says she did not threaten her husband with the machete.

Police took the machete.
