The male admitted to stabbing himself with the machete and then wrapped the blade with some cloth. Police and paramedics observed a large amount of blood on his stomach and under his body.
The male was transported to hospital by Ambulance, where he was admitted for medical attention.
Police continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding the males behaviour.
