The responding officer found a subject at the rear of the building on its east side, stabbed in the arm. He was transported to Mercy Hospital but his wounds were not life-threatening.
A police investigation revealed that the injured subject, Reggie Williams, 21, of Mason City, had approached a car in the liquor store drive-up lane, containing several occupants, and proceeded to have an argument about an on-going dispute. Williams then punched one of the occupants in the car. A different passenger then stabbed Williams in the arm.
Williams was released from the hospital and charged with disorderly conduct. The case is still under investigation.
SUBJECT IS INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY
Mason City police are investigating a possible stabbing incident early Friday on the city’s north side.
An NIT reader said “Witnesses say a man called BoBo was stabbed in the arm,” somewhere near the intersection of 13th Street and North Federal Ave.
Another source said today that authorities are “looking for a white Chevy Impala, 4-door with four people, one is armed with a knife that was involved in a stabbing at Northside Liquor.”
Mason City police confirmed this morning that there was an incident, but could offer little more information. “This incident is still under investigation, no arrests have been made at this point. A press release will be issued once we have more information,” a spokeswoman said.
If you have any information on this incident, call the Mason City Police at 641-421-3636.
