Two young men are facing charges in south-central Iowa after an apparent robbery turned violent.

Marion County Sheriff’s deputies were sent to an area northwest of Knoxville early Saturday morning on word of a “physical altercation.”

They recovered evidence and then learned a victim was airlifted to a Des Moines hospital. That person’s name is not being released, but the victim remains in critical condition.
