A man with a stabbing wound is tended to Saturday afternoon in Mason City.

MASON CITY – Saturday night at about 7:30 PM, Mason City Police arrested a man they had been searching for since an afternoon stabbing incident.

The victim, now identified by Mason City Police as Ricky DeMaris, age 54, was transported to Mercy Hospital with what police now describe as a life-threatening stab wound to his neck.

Witnesses had observed DeMaris on the sidewalk on the 200 block of 1st Street SW, calling for help.

DeMaris was treated at the scene briefly by paramedics and then at the hospital went into surgery and is now in intensive care and in stable condition.

Then this evening, Mason City police and Cerro Gordo County Sheriffs apprehended a sought after suspect, Michael Young, Jr. of Mason City.  He looked to be caught at 218 8th Place SE, and police were in a shed there investigating.  He was considered armed and dangerous.

“There are 9 police cars and sheriffs out here,” a caller to NIT informed.  “They have the entire block surrounded.”

“We got him,” Klemas said.  “The man wanted for the stabbing today.”

More information likely to be released by authorities soon.

Sgt. Steve Klemas immediately after a suspect in a stabbing assault was arrested. “We got him,” Klemas said.

    Would this not be attempted murder? He cut the guy across his throat.

    Did anyone hear the dispatcher on the audio portion of the video? The story does not list the name of the victim so I’m not sure if this was in regard to plaintiff or defendant. Dispatcher states the name comes back as Michael Young… who comes back with a caution because he carries a MACHETE! lives on 22 S Adams, not too far from where this happened. Damn South end is going down hill!
