A homeless man is under arrest after attacking another homeless man with a machete along a trail in Bala Cynwyd on Tuesday morning, 8/20. It happened around 4:30 a.m. between the Cynwyd Heritage Trail and the Schuylkill River in the Bala Cynwyd section of Lower Merion Township. The two men were fighting when on of them, 25-year-old Romeo Gagliardi, pulled out a machete and struck the victim several times in the head and ribs.
