An Iowa City man faces an assault charge after he allegedly threw confetti in a man’s face.

Dominique Jame Conway, 24, 409 S. Dodge St. Apt. 4, was charged June 18.

According to a complaint, Iowa City police were called to the intersection of Washington and Dubuque Streets after receiving reports of a man yelling at anti-parade protesters during the Pride Parade.

When officers arrived, the complaint said Conway allegedly threw a handful of paper confetti at the protester’s face.

The victim said he felt this contact was offensive, police said.

The report said Conway later admitted he assaulted the man because he didn’t agree with the man’s anti-gay statements.

Assault without injury or a dangerous weapon is a simple misdemeanor punishable by up to 30 days in jail and a maximum fine of $625.
