The Palmerston North man accused of attacking another man with a machete in the central city has made a brief appearance in court. 

Toby Lepper, 26, appeared in the Palmerston North District Court this afternoon on a charge of wounding with intent to injury in relation to the incident. 

He was allegedly arguing with a 27-year-old man on Main St on Friday, before hitting him with a machete.

The man suffered a serious cut to his arm and was taken to Palmerston North Hospital.

Lepper, who is also facing a number of unrelated charges, made no pleas and was bailed until next month.

Police still want to talk to anyone who witnessed the attack.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Rankin at Palmerston North Police on 351 3600.

Information can also be provided via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
