Posted: Updated:

KENENWICK, Wash-- A man is severely cut in the face and neck after police say a fight broke out at a party in Kennewick early Sunday morning.

It happened on the 500 block of west 1st Ave around 4 am. Thirty-four year-old Anthony Woodford had to be rushed to the hospital for surgery.

Officers later found a suspect, 28-year-old Liam Mermsen. He was booked into the Benton County Jail on outstanding warrants and assault charges will be sent to the prosecutor's office for consideration.

"He actually was located at Our Lady of Lourdes in Pasco with injuries to himself and that's where we ended up locating him and where he was arrested," said Ofc. Tony Valdez.

Woodford is listed in good condition at Kennewick general hospital. Police still aren't sure what he was cut with.
