SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Iowa City Police arrested a man after he allegedly squeezed the neck of the mother of his child.

Cortez Andrew Seals, 22, address unknown, was charged March 10 with domestic-abuse assault without intent causing injury.

Police reports said Seals initially went to the home of the mother of his child to take their 2-year-old son while she went to school.

When a friend of Seals stopped by, reports said he allegedly told the mother he would come back for the child later.

According to reports, the woman asked Seals to take the child, refusing to give him his keys until he agreed. Seals then allegedly entered the house, pushed the woman down, put her neck between his legs, and squeezed.

Police said Seals then allegedly took his keys and struck her in the face with his elbow.

Domestic-abuse assault without intent causing injury is a serious misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in jail and a maximum fine of $1,875.
