Richland police intervened Monday night when a man threatened to hurt himself with a knife.
Neighbors in the 900 block of McMurray Street said the man was refusing to cooperate with police about 9:15 p.m.
Police said when he wouldn’t put down the knife, they used a “less lethal” method to physically control him. Officers did not say what equipment was used.
The unidentified man was taken into custody and taken to Kadlec Regional Medical Center for minor injuries.
