MASON CITY, Iowa (AP) - A 43-year-old Mason City man has been accused of trying to kill his girlfriend.

Court records say Jason Clausen is charged with burglary, kidnapping and attempted murder. He remained in Cerro Gordo County Jail on Tuesday, pending $150,000 bail. Online court records don’t list the name of an attorney who could be contacted to comment for Clausen.

Mason City police say Clausen used a weapon to injure his girlfriend, and she was taken to a hospital. Police did not say what sort of weapon was used or provide other details about Sunday’s incident.
