Machete attack: This is 18-year-old Scott Carrabine, who said he grabbed a machete after a man came onto his property in Brunswick Hills
In the Facebook Live video, the two men are seen getting into a struggle over the weapon
Injured: Josh Patron, 21, eventually retreated from the struggle, but is seen with cuts to his arm and leg from the machete as he walked away
Investigators said Carrabine struck Patron with the machete as the two men struggled for control of the weapon, Fox 8 Cleveland reported.
Police said that, instead of breaking up the fight, Cumbee continued to record.
As Patron retreated from the struggle, Cumbee suddenly realized his friend had been sliced in the fight.
Cumbee can be heard saying in the video: 'Dude, we need to get you to the hospital right now, dude.'
He then adds: 'Dude, oh my goodness, my mom's … watching this s***.'

The two-minute video, which has since been deleted and re-posted by other Facebook users, appeared on September 21.
However a viewer watching it live called police, who went to the scene.
All three of the men involved were taken into custody.
Carrabine was charged with felonious assault and tampering with evidence. Patron was charged with simple assault and trespassing.
Cumbee was cited for criminal trespassing as well. Police said they hope the case sends a message to those who take part in criminal activity and post it on the web.

'I don't understand why they do it,' Police Chief Tim Sopkovich said.
'First of all, I don't understand why they would continue on pushing each other to where they want to actually fight and actually harm each other.
'Putting themselves and jeopardizing themselves and getting themselves in trouble because they're recording their actions, their unlawful actions that they're doing.'
