NORTHWOOD, Iowa – A man wanted in connection to a Northwood stabbing has been arrested and is facing charges for attempted murder, first-degree burglary and criminal mischief.
Trapp Trotter, 31, turned himself into authorities Monday in relation to the stabbing Saturday night.
The criminal mischief charge is listed as a hate crime, according to court documents.
During that incident, 25-year-old Andrew Nodtvedt, of Manly, suffered multiple stab and slashing wounds. He was transported to Mercy Medical Center-North Iowa and has since been treated and released.
The victim was at the residence when a male he didn’t know chased him into the apartment and stabbed him, documents state. A female who arrived on scene was able to identify Trapp.
Trapp also chased the victim down the street and said, “You’re going to die tonight, white boy,” according to court documents.
The victim’s car was located in front of the apartment where the windshield was found shattered and there was blood on the vehicle and on the ground. Jewelry found at the crime scene matched jewelry that Trapp had posted on social media, authorities said.
