A Richland man was jailed late Wednesday after he allegedly cut and stabbed two others during a domestic dispute.
Timothy J. Norman, 23, is being held in the Benton County jail on suspicion of two counts of second-degree assault.
Richland police were called about 11:40 p.m. about a stabbing on the 1300 block of Carolina Avenue, said Capt. Mike Cobb.
Officers were delayed in getting there because of a homicide investigation in another part of Richland.

Members of Kennewick's Crime Apprehension Team and the Benton County Sheriff's Office responded to help, Cobb said.
Investigators found the fight involved Norman, his domestic partner Cameron S. Withers, 36, their roommate Richard M. Jetton, 49, and a transient acquaintance Tyson Baker.
Norman reportedly was hitting Withers when Baker and Jetton tried to calm Norman.
They thought all was fine, until Norman became angry again and pulled a knife from his waistband, said Cobb in a news release.
Norman allegedly began to assault Withers a second time. Baker and Jetton intervened and Jetton was stabbed in the right hand, said Cobb.
Withers also suffered several cuts on the top of his head. The three were able to get the knife from Norman and hold him until officers arrived.
Both victims were treated and later released from a hospital.
