MASON CITY – According to a Mason City Police Department incident summary report, police were called to 938 North Federal Ave. Apartment #1 Thursday at 1:16 p.m. for a disturbance.
An NIT reader who was listening to the emergency scanner said that emergency responders were told that someone had “threatened to use a knife” if help didn’t arrive.
Police did not confirm any weapons at the scene and would not confirm anything outside of the police report information. That report said that five officers responded to the scene and “all parties were separated.”
The complainant was listed as Deoshea Rae Foster-Peggs, 22, one of the founders of a Facebook group called Fed^ North Iowa which local media has been following. The group, which has now migrated the cause to a Facebook page, states in its “About” section that “Tara Mikkelsen and Deoshea Foster, the two young women who founded the Non for Profit Organization “Fed ^ North Iowa”. We have a very bright vision of bringing harmony to the residents of North Iowa.”
Fed Up founder Kellie An Clark did not immediately respond to questions about the incident.
