PHOENIX (CBS5) -
A second suspect who eluded authorities after a Dec. 1 machete attack on a Flagstaff man has been arrested in northern California.
Luis Sanchez, also known as "Sauce," was taken into custody by U.S. Marshals following a barricade and standoff situation at an apartment complex in San Jose.
Andrew Jaurequi, 19, also known as "Applez," was arrested shortly after the attack happened. He was booked into jail on a warrant for probation violation, and attempted homicide.
The unidentified victim suffered injuries to his face, head, back and one of his legs, officers said. He survived the attack.
According to the victim, he was targeted by the pair, because of an earlier confrontation. The victim said the two suspects tracked him down to 1809 North Second St. and began attacking him with the weapon.
According to the initial report by the victim, he was held down by Jaurequi as Sanchez began attacking him with the machete.
The attackers fled the scene in Jaurequi's yellow, four-door 1991 Cadillac.
