Police rushed to Godwin Avenue after receiving a call just after 6:30 p.m. that Wycliffe Graham was breaking down a door, Police Chief Michael Foligno said.
Damage to the door "substantiated the victim's account of the incident," Foligno said.
Officers arrested Graham without incident and recovered the machete, the chief said.
He was charged with domestic violence aggravated assault and weapons counts.
No one was injured, Foligno said.
