Mason City woman accused of stabbing pleads not guilty

MASON CITY — A Mason City woman accused of stabbing a man in her apartment complex last month has pleaded not guilty.

A criminal complaint says 32-year-old Alexandra Polson stabbed a victim in the arm with a knife with the intent to cause serious injury sometime between August 9th and August 16th in the apartment complex at 305 5th Street Northwest. The complaint says the victim received medical treatment.

Polson has been charged with one count of willful injury causing bodily injury, a Class D felony, as well as domestic abuse assault, an aggravated misdemeanor.

She originally was due in court for her arraignment hearing today, but records show she filed a written plea of not guilty to the charges earlier this month. Her trial is scheduled for November 6th.
