Palm City man defends home with machete

PALM CITY, FL (WFLX) - A Vero Beach teen, suspected in a home invasion, is recovering in the hospital after being attacked with a machete.

Police say the homeowner went on a rampage after Michael Mack and two other teens busted through his door Monday morning. Police say the thieves knocked first, but when no one answered, they thought the homeowner wasn't there.

But he was and he was armed with a machete. 

The trio drove to an Indian River County Hospital where Mack got stitches to his head and hand. The two other teens are still on the run.
