Man accused of swinging hatchet in North County train station fight
ESCONDIDO, Calif. — Two men were arrested after a fight at a North County train station that led to one of the two swinging a small ax, police said.
The violent struggle broke out at the Sprinter station on West Valley Parkway in Escondido around 9:30 p.m. Monday. By the time officers arrived, both men were hurt and needed to be taken to the hospital.
