Police in San Antonio say a man is in custody after attacking two women with a machete, critically injuring them, and then leading officers on a chase north of downtown.
Police Chief William McManus described the wounds to the women as "very, very severe" and authorities say they were taken Thursday to a hospital with life-threatening injuries.
The women, one in her 30s and the other in her 50s, were found inside a home that had its front door barricaded. Authorities told the San Antonio Express-News that one of the victims had dated the suspect.
