Authorities converged on the home Friday evening and took six people into custody. No shots were fired and no injuries were reported. The district attorney said the raid was conducted as part of an investigation into drugs on the street.
The residence is the home of 46-year-old Russell Duffney Jr. He is charged with first-degree assault and criminal possession of a weapon. Police said he nearly sliced off a man's ear with a machete when a fight broke out during a cookout there.
It wasn't clear how the drug investigation and the machete attack were related.
