    A machete-wielding man is in police custody after allegedly attacking another man near the Eaton Centre Wednesday afternoon.

    Police say they were called at 4:37 p.m. about the incident, which happened near Bay and Dundas streets.

    One person has suffered injuries to the head and leg, said Craig Brister with the Toronto Police.

    Paramedics say the injured person is a man in his 30s. He has been taken to a trauma centre for his injuries, which are non-life-threatening.

    Cops got the call just after 4:30pm of a man wielding a machete and menacing against another. The victim has been sent to the hospital with a head and leg injury.

    Witness reports suggest that the suspect was screaming “F*** White People” before the attack occurred.

    A witness, Terence Yip, told CBC News that he was heading south on Bay Street when he heard yelling. He said one man was swinging at a man who was holding a guitar. Yip said a woman was yelling for police.

    Yip said a bystander tried to break up the fight. The man with the machete had his back to the door at the Atrium on Bay Street. Security guards nearby tackled the man from behind.

    A bystander tried to break up the fight! Equal parts crazy and brave.

    Does fruit cake last forever? Scientists say combination of alcohol and dried fruit means most puddings last much longer than the 'use by date'

    A 30-year-old man suffered injuries to his head and leg after being struck twice with a machete, said Sgt. Dale Corra. Police say the alleged attacker also had a hunting knife on him. Police now have both weapons.

    Yip said the man being attacked was on his back defending himself with his legs, while the man with the machete was swinging the knife at the man's legs.

    "I've never seen anyone openly attack someone like that," said Yip. "It was extremely aggressive to the point where it was obvious that it was an attack."

    Yip said a bystander tried to break up the fight, intervening long enough to allow the victim to run inside a nearby building.

    Terence Yip, who witnessed the attack, told CBC that the attack was ‘extremely aggressive.’ (CBC)
    Yip also tweeted that the attacker, a black man, yelled “F–k white people” before allegedly attacking the victim, who is white. He said the alleged attacker’s machete was “probably the length of my arm. It was pretty big, a substantial weapon.”
