ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A Dougherty County man was hit twice with a machete, during a robbery attempt Tuesday night.  Dougherty County police are investigating, and looking for that masked robber.

Police tell us that Margarto Logo said about 9:30 last night, he was talking on his phone outside his mobile home at 600 Holly Drive, when a masked man with a machete demanded money.

Logo told him he had no money, and that's when the masked man attacked him. 

"Struck him on the back of the neck and on the back.  The subject then fled, running north through the mobile home park," said Dougherty Co. Police Investigator Steve Mitchum.

Police say because he had a heavy coat on, Logo sustained only minor cuts. He was treated by EMS at his home.  Police tonight continue their search for the masked man.
