WATERLOO – A severe beating was inflicted upon an apartment complex maintenance worker in Waterloo after an irate boyfriend invaded his girlfriend’s apartment and beat the man with a bicycle.

On Wednesday, June 13, 2018 Waterloo Police and Waterloo Fire Rescue responded to a report of an assault in progress in the area of the 1200 block of West Mullan Avenue. Upon the officers’ arrival, they found the victim, 72-year-old Johannes Rodenburgh of Waterloo suffering from injuries to his head and neck.   Mr. Rodenburgh was transported to the hospital for treatment of his injuries.
