Man accused of stabbing woman


A Mashalltown man is accused of stabbing a woman during a domestic incident.

According to Marshalltown Police Department Capt. Chris Jones, an argument between the woman and Jorge Alberto Ibanez, 39, turned physical after Ibanez allegedly used a small knife to stab the victim on Tuesday.

The victim reported the incident two days later to authorities. Officers then interviewed Ibanez and arrested and charged with him with domestic abuse (use of a weapon) and going armed with intent.

The victim’s injuries were not serious, Jones said.

Ibanez is currently being held in the Marshall County Jail on a $5,000 cash or surety bond.
