A Clayton man was arrested for allegedly cutting his roommate with a machete.

36-year-old Marvin Ordonez Moya was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury and given a $50,000 secured bond.

The victim said he came home from work to his house on Lakeview Drive and was making dinner in the kitchen when Moya, who had been sleeping, walked out of the bedroom and began arguing with him.
