    The first incident happened just before 2 a.m. Friday in the 6300 block of Fenestra Court. Police say four people wearing masks forced their way into the townhome and assaulted the 28-year-old victim with a machete.

    A short time later, the same four suspects forced their way into a home in the 6300 block of Birch Leaf Court, where they assaulted a 62-year-old man with the same weapon.

    The two scenes are about a block and a half apart. 

    Police say the victims are acquaintances and were targeted. Both men suffered non-life-threatening injuries. 

    The suspects fled the area in a waiting vehicle. 

    Police say there's no threat to the public at this time.
