Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash. - A Richland man is facing charges accused of stabbing and injuring two people Wednesday night.

Richland police say around 11:40 p.m., two people got into a fight along the 1300 block of Carolina Avenue. They say Timothy Norton, 23, was hitting his partner Cameron Withers, 36, when two other people tried to break the fight up.

Officers say Norton calmed down for a bit but then pulled out a knife and began assaulting Withers in the head. Richard Jetton, 49, tried to stop him but Norton stabbed him in the hand. Withers sustained several cuts to the top of his head.

The victims were eventually able to hold Norton down until officers arrived and arrested him.

Police booked Norton into the Benton County Jail for two counts of second degree assault and one count of domestic violence.

Both Withers and Jetton were treated for their injuries and released.
