A north Iowa man is in jail after being charged with attempted murder.
49-year-old Brian Beesecker of Fairbank was arrested by the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office following an incident on September 28th. At about 8 p.m. that night, deputies responded to a report of two men arguing in the 2000 block of Willow Road, about two miles north of Fairbank. Both men fled the scene when authorities arrived.
An initial investigation by law enforcement determined Beesecker got into a verbal confrontation with the other man, then the altercation escalated into a physical encounter. Beesecker allegedly attempted to stab the other man.
An arrest warrant was issued for Beesecker, who has been apprehended and booked into the Fayette County Jail in West Union. His bond was set at $50,000.
