MASON CITY | A Mason City man is in jail after making terroristic threats directed at police officers, hospital staff and others Monday, court documents say. 

Steven Dwayne Williams, 49, walked into the Mason City Police Department about 7:30 p.m. and called dispatch from the phone in the lobby.

He told dispatchers he wanted to go to the hospital because he was homicidal and wanted to hurt officers when they arrived, according to court documents. 

Officers secured Williams and searched him for contraband. Williams allegedly told them he "wanted to kill somebody" and was upset the hospital would not admit him, court documents said. 

“He informed the officers that he wants us (police) to take him back to the hospital and if they refuse to admit him he was going to get a bottle of alcohol, make a Molotov cocktail bomb, and come back here (police department) with it,” the criminal complaint said.

Williams also threatened to kill children, teenagers, adults and nurses, court documents said. 

Williams was charged with felony threats of terrorism.

He is being held in Cerro Gordo County Jail on a $5,000 bond. No court date has been set.
