Iowa City police arrested a man after he allegedly physically and verbally abused his girlfriend Sunday.

Alvin Seals, 35, 223 Woodside Drive, was charged with domestic-abuse assault causing bodily injury.

According to reports, Seals choked the woman after an argument and caused her to hit her elbow on a wall. During the struggle, the woman scraped her elbow and cut her finger, police said.

Seals also reportedly urinated on the woman’s belongings, threw a lamp against the wall, and threatened to “jab her face” with the broken lamp. Seals also told her he wished she was dead, police said.

Reports showed Seals continued to verbally abuse the woman. The woman said the argument continued throughout the day and that Seals told her he would kill her in her sleep, according to police.

Domestic-abuse assault causing bodily injury is a serious misdemeanor and is generally punishable by up to one year in jail and a $1,500 fine.
