A Vallejo man was arrested Friday night after allegedly chasing children while brandishing a machete.

Officers were dispatched to Candy and Jack London drives at about 8:24 p.m. Witnesses told them that a man had come into Meadows Park armed with a machete and a gun. They pointed out the house in which he lived in the 100 block of Lilac Court, police said.

Officers tried to contact the suspect, Frederick Hines, 44, who came out the side door, then went back inside, police said.
