NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - Officers with the Nacogdoches Police Department arrested a 29-year-old man on Tuesday after he allegedly stabbed and cut his uncle at a home in the 1400 block of Shawnee Street.
Deronald Cordevrian Norris, of Nacogdoches, is still being held in the Nacogdoches County jail on a first-degree felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon charge. No bail amount has been set at this time.
According to the arrest affidavit, a Nacogdoches PD officer was dispatched out to a home in the 1400 block of Shawnee Street Tuesday in reference to an assault that had just occurred. When the NPD officer got to the scene, he talked to the victim, who had multiple stab wounds and cuts on his head and body.
