James Pietrarosso

A man wanted for attempted murder and other charges in northwest Iowa has turned himself in to authorities.

Thirty-three-year-old James Pietrarosso is accused of strangling a woman with a rope, sexually assaulting her and threatening her life at a residence in Emmetsburg on November 12.

He eluded police for nearly a month before turning himself in on Friday. At the time of the alleged assault, Pietrarosso was out on bond for drug-related charges. Pietrarossa now faces charges of attempted murder, sexual assault, burglary, and violation of a protective order.

He is being held in the Clay County Jail on $100,000 cash bond.
