49-year-old Douglas Harmon, walked toward them with a machete in his hand. Ramsey says the man started asking some "off-the-wall questions," including why they weren't being so nice.

machete. "He hit me twice in the head with the blade... I jumped up, he got me right in the ear, he almost cut my ear off," says Ramsey.

Ramsey says Harmon continued the attack hitting him in the wrist, breaking it.

"I remember getting behind him and kicking him down," says Ramsey, "then I started getting away."

Ramsey says the man started following him before he changed his mind.

Ramsey says he lost a lot of blood in the attack.

"It was raining, I was totally warm, hot from the blood that was covering me," says Ramsey.

"I think that he should be put away for life... If this guy gets out he's gonna do it again," says Ramsey, "what makes you think he wouldn't do it to a 5-year-old kid."

Harmon was arrested for 1st Degree Assault and was transported to a mental institution.
