Suspect’s Hand Cut Off with Machete in Home Invasion

NORTHAMPTON, Pa. (AP) — Two home invasion suspects are in custody — including one whose hand was cut off by an eastern Pennsylvania man who defended himself with a machete.

Police didn’t immediately identify the suspects, including the man who lost his hand and was dumped by a car at Lehigh Valley Hospital-Muhlenberg early Sunday.

Northampton police Chief Ronald Morey says the man entered an apartment late Saturday where 28-year-old Troy Imbody lived. Imbody’s father, Robert, tells reporters that three men came in to “rough up” his son, who pulled a machete and cut off the hand of one man.

Troy Imbody hasn’t been charged as police continued to investigate the incident.

A sign since posted on Imbody’s door says, “Come with two, leave with one” and “Beware of Troy.”
