MASON CITY – Mason City police responded to a fight in progress Sunday afternoon in Mason City and arrested two men.

A bystander told NorthIowaToday.com that the situation began to escalate and “Galindo then allegedly started fighting with Billy Foster,” 47, also of Mason City. Police stated that “Billy Foster and Dave Galindo were fighting in the front yard and street (of a residence at the 900 block of 9th Street NE) as police arrived.”
