Johnson County deputies arrested an Iowa man after he allegedly broke into a home and placed his hands over a woman’s face.

Dallas Miller, 22, Aplington, Iowa, was charged Thursday with assault with intent to commit sexual abuse.

The complaint said deputies responded to 2245 500th St. S.W., Kalona, on Sept. 8 after the woman’s family dialed 911.

According to the complaint, Miller entered the woman’s bedroom and proceeded to break the door knob off to prohibit anyone from intruding. The suspect then allegedly placed his hands over the woman’s face and mouth in an attempt to keep her from screaming and alerting other family members.

After the woman screamed, the complaint said her family ran to her room to investigate, causing the suspect to flee through an open window.

The complaint said Miller reportedly left a rifle, camera, and black tape behind. After he fled, the woman had to go to the door to let her family in, because they were unable to open the door.

A responding officer observed the suspect’s pickup parked approximately 100 feet from the house, the complaint said.
