Mason City police continue stabbing investigation

MASON CITY — The investigation continues into a stabbing incident last week in Mason City.

The Mason City Police Department says they were called shortly before 6:30 on Thursday night to the area of 15th Northeast and North Pennsylvania Avenue, where on arrival officers and paramedics provided medical assistance to a juvenile male and an adult male with multiple stab wounds. Both victims were transported to MercyOne North Iowa for emergency care.
