Wanted Ventura man arrested in Mason City

MASON CITY — A Ventura man wanted by authorities was arrested earlier today with an officer being injured.

Authorities say 34-year-old Justin Glidden was arrested after Mason City police officers responded to the area of 2nd and North Adams after receiving a report of a suspicious male who knocked on a door. Glidden was located nearby and allegedly gave authorities a fake name and ran away from officers. One officer suffered an injury to their hand.

Glidden is being held in the Cerro Gordo County jail on two counts of failure to appear and one count of interference with official acts resulting in bodily injury. He’s being held on a total of $5000 bond.
