    Police talk inside the Columbus, Ohio, restaurant where they say a man attacked several people with a machete on Thursday, Feb. 11, 2016. They say the man fled the scene and was later fatally shot by police.

    Some of the victims of a machete-wielding Ohio man are recalling the attack, NBC News reported.

    Debbie and Gerald Russell were in a front booth at Nazareth Restaurant and Deli in Columbus on Thursday when Gerald noticed a man barge through the door with what he thought was a baton.

    "He had a look on his face that was [indescribable]," Gerald told NBC affiliate WCMH. "And it was just a lot of hate and anger, and I have no idea where the rage is coming from."

    Mohamed Barry, 30, charged into the restaurant and began assaulting patrons, authorities said.

    William Foley, 54, "aggressively attempted to subdue" Barry, Foley's friend Bonnie Stern told NBC News in an email. He engaged "in a physical altercation with him to keep him from hurting or even killing the other people in the restaurant. He was then critically injured in the process."
