Authorities are investigating after a man said he was attacked by his landscaper.

The incident happened Wednesday at a home in Lehigh Acres.

A victim reported that his landscaper, who had been mowing his lawn for two months, did work at his home without approval and then demanded money, according to an incident report from the Lee County Sheriff’s Office.

When the victim told the landscaper he only had a partial payment, the man grabbed a gas-powered weed wacker and began shoving it in the man’s face.

The victim sustained non-life-threatening injuries.

The landscaper left after the altercation, but a camera outside the victim’s recorded it.

No one has been arrested in the crime.
