Bringus arraigned in Coalville incident

The suspect in a Coalville home invasion was arraigned Monday.

Jason J. Bringus, 37, is facing charges of attempted murder, first-degree robbery, assault while participating in a felony and going armed with intent, all felonies. He also faces an aggravated misdemeanor, carrying weapons.

Bringus, who is accused of stabbing Dean Henderson at his Coalville home on June 1, recovered at a Des Moines hospital since the early morning incident in which Bringus was shot.

Charges were filed against Bringus on Aug. 6.

Bringus allegedly showed up at Henderson’s Coalville home around 6 a.m. on June 1 and began speaking with him, according to Webster County Sheriff Jim Stubbs.

At first Bringus was only asking questions, but then he allegedly began struggling with Henderson.

Henderson “received several lacerations to his neck” with a knife, according to Stubbs. He was able to get his gun and shoot Bringus three times.

Bringus fled the scene in his vehicle, which was later located in a ditch on Mill Road, just outside of Fort Dodge. Bringus was still in the vehicle, law enforcement reported.

Both Henderson and Bringus were taken to Trinity Regional Medical Center. Bringus was eventually transported to the Des Moines hospital for further treatment.

Henderson was released from Trinity after a little more than a week.
