A Scots man was left with bones exposed and covered in blood after an alleged meat cleaver attack in Fife.
Police were called to the scene on Forres Drive in Glenrothes at around 7.30pm on Thursday.
A 28-year-old had allegedly been attacked with a bladed weapon and was found with blood pouring from deep gashes to his head, neck and hand.
The man was treated by paramedics before being rushed to Ninewells Hospital in Dundee where he is expected to undergo surgery.
His condition is currently described as "serious but not life-threatening" by medics.
The victim's partner claimed he had been attacked with a meat clever and "thought he was dying".
She added that she could see inside the back of his neck and he was shouting that he couldn't see.
Pictures shared on social media show the man's grey t-shirt saturated with pouring blood as he desperately tried to stem the flow.
His head was later bandaged by paramedics who also treated him for a hand injury.
Police have arrested a man and a woman in connection with the incident.
A Police Scotland spokesperson said: "A 31 year-old man and a 25 year-old woman have been arrested in connection with this incident.
"A full report will be sent to the Procurator FIscal.
"Officers would like to thank the public for their assistance in this enquiry."
Anyone with information should contact Police Scotland on 101, quoting incident 3054 of 30 July. Alternatively, you can call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, if you wish to remain anonymous.
