OAKLAND (KPIX 5) — A man wielding a machete and yelling at drivers in Oakland ended up being struck by two separate vehicles in apparent hit-and-runs.

The incidents happened at 37th and International Boulevard in around 3 a.m., and police were called to the scene.

An eyewitness recorded video of the incidents and posted it to YouTube Monday.

“Can I get a second unit for cover, 37th-International.  This call is advising a male Hispanic armed with a machete, someone is trying to run him over, and the subject with the machete is hitting the vehicle with it,” police dispatchers said.

Video shows the machete wielding man being struck by a red vehicle backing into the man. Another car, which appears to be a white sedan, plowed into the man moments later.

“Units, be advised that the subject in the vehicle just hit the other subject with the machete with the vehicle,” the dispatcher said.

The man with the machete was able to get up after being hit, and was arrested when police arrived.
