A local man was arrested last month after he allegedly threw a woman to the ground by her hair and destroyed hundreds of dollars of her property.

Baari Abdu Bin Arafat, 25, 2107 Davis St., was charged May 28 with domestic-abuse assault without intent causing injury and fourth-degree criminal mischief — both serious misdemeanors.

According to Iowa City police, Arafat and a woman — with whom he had lived since February — argued in front of the bus depot on 200 E. Court St.

After exchanging a set of keys, Arafat allegedly grabbed the woman by the hair and threw her to the ground, bruising her right forearm.

Complaints said Arafat entered a cab, returning to his residence to destroy more than $400 of the alleged victim’s clothing.

Two coworkers witnessed the assault from a bench across the street, reports said.
