Two people in Cedar Falls are in the hospital after being randomly stabbed while in the University Avenue Studios apartments.

Police were dispatched to the apartment complex at 4:35 p.m. on Monday, October 17th. Once on the scene they found two victims, in separate units, each with multiple stab wounds. Officers believe the victims were chosen at random.

A 62-year-old male victim was taken to the hospital with multiple potentially life threatening injuries.

Both victims are recovering.

Meanwhile, police continue to investigate the apparent random stabbings. Right now 28-year-old Adam Jacobsen has been taken into custody. Jacobsen appears to also live in the University Avenue Studios apartment complex.

adam-jacobsen-fbConcerns have been raised after citizens reported alarming posts on Jacobsen’s Facebook page. Posts from earlier this year have the 28-year-old claiming to be “…craving murder.” In another post Jacobsen claimed “Ive killed people in real and never have or will get caught.” Investigators with the Cedar Falls Police Department say they are aware of these posts and they are part of their ongoing investigation.

This incident proves once again that violent human beings often defy logic and sometimes you’re just in the wrong place at the wrong time. Being able to defend yourself and your loved ones is each resident’s responsibility. The police cannot be everywhere at once and when trouble comes calling you need to be prepared and able to defend yourself and your loved ones.
