A confrontation over personal property led to a stabbing that landed a Kennewick man in jail early Friday, authorities said.
The victim, a 29-year-old Richland man, was stabbed in the torso and arm, said Richland police Officer Erica Tungesvik. His was treated and later released from Kadlec Regional Medical Center.
The stabbing took place around 4:45 a.m. in the 2400 block of Garlick Boulevard in Richland, near a roundabout where Garlick Boulevard and Stevens Drive intersect.
Officers learned the victim had been stabbed in an apparent fight over some property and identified Jeffrey Curtis Talbott-Jones as the suspect, Tungesvik said.

Talbott-Jones was arrested and booked into the Benton County jail on suspicion of second-degree assault.
The knife believed to be used in the assault was recovered, Tungesvik said.
18-year-old Milton-Freewater man gets over 16 years for abuse of kids
An 18-year-old Milton-Freewater man will spend more than 16 years in an Oregon prison for sodomizing and sexually abusing two young children, officials said.
Edward Wayne Yeoman was 17 when he committed his crimes, said Dean Gushwa, Umatilla County District Attorney.
Yeoman, who pleaded guilty June 16 to one count of first-degree sodomy and two counts of first-degree sexual abuse, was sentenced Thursday to 16 years and eight months in prison, Gushwa said.
There's no possibility of early release, Gushwa said.
Yeoman was arrested in January after a Umatilla County Grand Jury handed down a 15-count indictment, that included multiple charges of sodomy, sexual abuse, sexual penetration and luring a minor.
