A 42-year-old Fort Dodge man is facing two counts of attempted murder after a violent incident early Sunday. Fort Dodge Police were notified of a reported stabbing at the Relax Bar at 1104 Central Avenue.
When officers arrived, they were told a man described as a Mexican male with a bald head had committed the stabbing and had left the area on foot heading north on 11th Street. The man was later apprehended without incident at another bar in the downtown area of Fort Dodge. The man apprehended was identified as Donald M. Williams, Jr. of Fort Dodge.
The two people allegedly stabbed by Williams were identified as Pedro P. Heredic of Humboldt and Ramiro Pardo Calles of Fort Dodge. Both victims were taken to Trinity Regional Medical Center in Fort Dodge for treatment of their injuries. Williams was being held in the Fort Dodge Jail.
