Ainsworth man hospitalized after stabbing
AINSWORTH — The Washington County Sheriff’s Office reported this morning that an Ainsworth man was taken by AirCare to the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City late Sunday with multiple stab wounds, including one to the neck.
Washington County Sheriff Jerry Dunbar said that at about 11 p.m. the Washington County Communications Center got a call reporting a man was in the parking lot of Ainsworth Elementary School and had been stabbed. Ainsworth Fire and QRS responded and found Robert Joseph Creamer, 39, of Ainsworth, in a friend’s jeep with a stab wound to the neck. An Ainsworth QRS worker radioed the communications center and reported that Creamer was conscious but had lost a lot of blood. While Dunbar said he didn’t know the extent of the injuries, he said Creamer was alive this morning. The media relations department at the hospitals reported no information was available about Creamer.
Dunbar said two persons of interest were stopped in a vehicle on Wayland Road and Sockum Ridge Road in Washington. He said the subjects are from Wayland just inside Henry County. Deputies questioned the subjects and search warrants were served on their vehicle and residence. The vehicle is still in sheriff’s department custody. The search warrants weren’t available at the Washington County Courthouse this morning. Dunbar said the subjects aren’t in custody. He also said the sheriff’s department believes the subjects and Creamer knew each other. The investigation is ongoing.
“As soon as we get a medical report and find out how the wounds were inflicted and back it up with a medical exam, things will move a little quicker,” Dunbar said. “Right now we are at kind of a standstill to take our next step.”
