A Sigourney, Iowa, man was arrested by University of Iowa police after he allegedly punched and kneed a man in downtown Iowa City.

Kasey Michael O’Rourke, 25, was charged May 21 with willful injury causing serious injury, a Class C felony.

According to a report, a group led by O’Rourke had an altercation with the alleged victim’s group at Milio’s, 20 S. Clinton St., and parted ways soon after.

Later that night, the report said O’Rourke and his group approached the alleged victim’s group outside of Phillips Hall where he punched the victim in the head, knocking him down to the ground.

He then reportedly kneed the victim’s head into a concrete wall.

The police report said UI Hospitals and Clinics records show the victim received numerous facial fractures and injuries requiring surgery.

Willful injury causing serious injury is punishable by up to 10 years in prison and a maximum fine of $10,000.
