NORTHWOOD – Reports have come to the NIT newsroom about another stabbing incident in the small North Iowa town of Northwood.  The incident took place early Monday morning.

According to a source, a woman was attacked by a man at the 200 block of 4th Street NE in Northwood at about midnight.  The source indicated that the woman had multiple stab wounds to the face, forehead, neck, jaw and chest and may also have been hit with a hammer.

A male subject was also injured and may have been tasered by police.

According to the Worth County Sheriff’s Office, no information could be given, but it was confirmed that there was an incident and the the Iowa Department of Criminal Investigation is handling the scene and that more information will soon be released.

FROM THE IOWA DCI:

Northwood, IOWA – On September 22, 2013, at about 11:30 pm, a Deputy with the Worth County Sheriff’s Department was notified of a possible domestic assault in progress at 208 4th Street North in Northwood, Iowa.  The Deputy responded to the residence where he heard a female yelling and screaming for help.  The Deputy entered the residence and discovered a male subject severely beating a female victim.  Additional Deputies arrived on scene and attempted to subdue the male subject and eventually were able to handcuff him.  While the suspect was handcuffed, he became unresponsive.  Efforts to revive him at the scene were unsuccessful and he was pronounced dead.

The female victim was life-flighted to Rochester, MN where she is being treated for stab wounds and blunt force injuries.  Initial indication is that the male and female were involved in a personal relationship.

The Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation has responded to the scene and is assisting with the death investigation.   An autopsy of the male subject will take place at the Iowa State Medical Examiner’s Office in Ankeny, Iowa.  Names of the deceased male and female victim are not being released at this time, pending family notification.

Additional information will be forthcoming.

    I grew up in northwood, and it was a nice peacefull town. never locked our doors or cars. yes, there were some drug dealers that started up in the 70’s, but mostly small time, and not violent. shame that they were there, but every town has some drug problems. never had any stbbings/murders until this summer. it is a shame that things have gotten so bad.

    Mason City also has its share of imports from Detroit, Chicago, and Cincinnati. Detroit went bankrupt and the welfare rates in Chicago and the bankrupt city of Detroit are very low compared to Iowa. I live near one of them from Chicago. Their car is a stolen one because it has been spray-painted and that is what they do in Illinois. Also they have lived here over 2 years and have never obtained Iowa license plates Also there is an Illinois car with no plates near me. I called the PD but they said that they are too busy to bother with it.

    It never was a nice peaceful town. It has always been full of drugs. It is just since the outsiders from other states have moved in that the major crimes have started. As far as the police are concerned it has always been there. They just kept it under wraps.

    Probably not related, BUT, Northwood used to be a very nice peacefull town, since the casino, I believe 3 different police chiefs, several cops, numerous different council people, etc. Murders, beatings, assults, on and on. In a town hardly big enough to have a policeman. Whats the deal up there???
