(Ironwood, MI) – A quiet Sunday afternoon was broken in Ironwood, MI when a Wisconsin woman allegedly injured her husband in a domestic violence incident involving a knife inside an Ironwood convenience store.
The victim and suspect were later found in Iron County, Wisconsin, and this time he was the victim. It appears the couple have a history of domestic violence incidents as mutual combatants.
The victim also had a warrant out of Ironwood, MI for domestic violence – even though he was the victim this time.
Ironwood Public Safety officers answered the call at about 2:20 p.m. CT on Sunday afternoon, March 25, 2018.
It started with a call from the manager of the Krist Food Mart at 139 W. Cloverland Dr. in Ironwood, MI (near N. Lawrence St.).
Store manager Gary Etter said “he witnessed an assault inside the store,” the dispatcher told responding police officer. “There is blood in the store.”
The manager said he saw Storm “pull a knife on her – perhaps husband – Alex Storm.”
The couple “did leave – traveling towards Wisconsin in a red Chevy Impala,” the dispatcher told officers.
“I’ll be there in less than a minute,” said the officer assigned to the call, who arrived at 2:26 p.m. CT on Sunday afternoon, March, 25, 2018.
The suspect vehicle is a maroon burgundy 2001 Chevrolet Impala – registered to Nellie Ann Works of Wisconsin Rapids, WI – also known as Nellie A. Yatczak. Works has a Wisconsin conviction for burglary of a building or dwelling, a class F felony.
Police determined the suspect and victim (Storm coupe) are living with Works on 11784 Atlantic Street in the city of Iron Belt located in Iron County, WI.
A be-on-the-lookout (BOLO) of the vehicle was sent to Wisconsin including Hurley and Iron County, WI.
The lookout stated that officers should stop the vehicle on check on the condition of the possibly stabbed male occupant – Alex Storm.
The vehicle was found in Iron County, WI – along the victim, who was apparently not seriously injured.
The Ironwood investigating officer told the dispatcher that he doubts they will extradite the Sunday victim – Mr. Storm – back to Ironwood to face his original domestic violence charge.
It is unclear if charges were filed or if Mrs. Storm was taken into custody.
