JACKSBORO (WATE) - A Knoxville man is facing attempted murder charges after attacking a Campbell County man with a machete.

Investigators say Pablo Carmona hid inside the victim's Jacksboro home last Wednesday and struck him in the head with the machete in an attempt to kill him.

The victim is still alive, but his name has not been released.

Carmona was arrested Friday and charged with attempted first degree murder, aggravated criminal trespassing and unlawful possession of a weapon.

The sheriff's department said the attack was likely the result of a disagreement between the two men over a woman.
