MASON CITY | Three roofers got in a fight Monday, resulting in one of them being injured and the other two getting arrested.
Selvin Martinez, 24, and Juan Hernandez, 24, were each charged with willful injury, a Class D felony, after getting into a fight with another man near the Days Inn, according to Mason City police.
Home addresses of the men were unavailable. They are employed by contractors working on the Wal-Mart building repairs, police said.
The injured man was treated and released from Mercy Medical Center-North Iowa. His name was not released.
The original call to police was the report of a stabbing but that turned out to be erroneous. He suffered injuries to his abdomen in the fight, according to police.
They received the call at about 7:30 p.m. Monday.
