Johnson County sheriffs arrested a North Liberty man for allegedly attempting to assault a woman he had reportedly been harassing.

Sammy Scott Hanna, 38, was charged with assault with intent to commit sexual abuse and first-degree harassment.

According to reports, Hanna was in a relationship with the woman and threatened to tell her husband and children about the relationship. Police said Hanna contacted the woman’s family by phone and computer numerous times.

On Nov. 13, the woman went to Hanna’s North Liberty residence with a hidden listening device, police said. According to police, officers were listening to the conversation when Hanna allegedly began to sexually assault the woman.

The officers had to push their way into the apartment to stop the assault, police said.

Assault with intent to commit sexual abuse and first-degree harassment are aggravated misdemeanors, generally punishable by up to two years in prison and a $5,000 fine.
