Orange County deputies say a man attacked his ex-wife with a machete as her three-year-old child watched.

The attack happened late Thursday night at a home on Park Hamilton Boulevard, just off of Silver Star Road.

Deputies tell Local 6 the mom and her new boyfriend went to pick up her child at her ex-husband's house. While at the house, the woman's ex-husband and her boyfriend got into an argument. Deputies say the mom got involved in the argument and was then attacked with a machete.

Both the mother and her boyfriend were hurt in the attack, but deputies say they were both expected to recover. The child was not hurt.

Deputies were still questioning the woman's ex-husband and his brother early Friday morning.
