A Lytton man was taken into custody Thursday evening for attempted murder after stabbing a man. A press release from the Sac County Sheriff’s Office says the victim, an employee of Essentia Protein Solutions who was not working at the time, radioed plant workers from the office for help at approximately 9:33 p.m. The victim, identified as 47-year-old Luke Clark of Lytton, walked nearly three blocks for assistance after he was stabbed at least twice in the 600 block of Railway Street. He was taken to Loring Hospital in Sac City by Sac County Emergency Medical Services and later transported to a Sioux City hospital. His condition is unknown at this time. Clark was able to identify 57-year-old David Alan Littlefield as the assailant. Littlefield was arrested a short time later at his home in the 200 block of Oak Street in Lytton. Law enforcement executed a search warrant at the residence and located bloodied clothes and a knife. Littlefield is charged with attempted murder, a class B felony, and going armed with intent, a class D felony. He remains in custody at the Sac County jail. The Lytton Fire Department and Sac City Police Department assisted at the scene.
