ORLANDO, Fla. -

Orlando police have arrested a man who they say threatened to chop off a 16-year-old's head with a machete for making a noise complaint against him on Tuesday night.

Miguel Baez, 63, is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after he threatened the teen.

Police said the victim approached Baez's room at the Home Suite Home Hotel on East Colonial Drive after hearing loud noises and asked Baez to keep the noise level down in his room.

Baez then took a machete and told the victim if he "knocked on the door again, I'm going to cut your head off,"according to the report.

Police searched Baez's room just before 10:30 p.m. Thursday and found the machete and 22.5 grams of marijuana, resulting in him being charged with drug possession, according to the report.
