Thomas Norman has been arrested on aggravated assault and weapons charges tied to the stabbing of two people that reportedly took place Saturday (November 7) at a residence owned by the RZA, according to Billboard.
The publication says it is not known if the 23-year-old Englishtown, New Jersey resident has retained an attorney. His bail has been set at $120,000.
The RZA performed at a festival in Texas and was not home when the stabbings took place, Billboard reports.

Sgt. Gregory Williams, a State Police spokesman, said that the New Jersey State Police responded to a report of a stabbing at a Deer Trail Drive home at 1:18 am local time Saturday morning. Upon their arrival, police found two men stabbed.
Although Williams would not confirm the homeowner’s name, NJ.com reports that property records show the residence indeed belongs to RZA; however it’s unclear whether or not the Wu-Tang Clan member was home at the time of the incident.
Williams says that the two men sustained serious injuries and were subsequently taken to the Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune.
The investigation is currently ongoing by the department’s Major Crimes Unit.
Earlier this week, it was reported that Wu-Tang Clan members RZA and Raekwon were named in FBI filings on the murders of two men in 1999.
