Jared Foster, 28, was charged Feb. 7 with carrying a weapon and assault use/display of a weapon, the complaint said.

According to the report, Foster entered a home in North Liberty with a loaded handgun he bought earlier that day.

The report said the defendant then encountered a resident and displayed a Glock 27 semi-automatic pistol that he had concealed in his coat.

North Liberty police said Foster then tried to grab the alleged victim’s phone, and the resident was placed in fear by Foster’s actions.

Foster does not posses a permit to carry weapons, the report said.
