DAKOTA CITY, Iowa – Two people are facing attempted murder charges in Humboldt County.

Authorities say Nicholas Joseph Bradley, 35 of Fort Dodge, and Vilma Cyreena Velasquez, 26 of Humboldt, tried to kill Austin Dean on April 29. Court documents allege the two were angry with Dean and looking to attack him. Authorities say that while Dean was riding his bicycle, Bradley intentionally ran into him with his truck while Velasquez was chasing after Dean with a bat.

Law enforcement says Bradley and Velasquez’ actions happened in Humboldt and were recorded on video.

Charges were filed against the two on June 29. Velasquez was arrested on August 6 and a warrant was served on Bradley on September 7.
