Iowa City police arrested a local man after he allegedly assaulted a 14-year old-boy.

Curtis Kemp, 44, 1100 Arthur St. Apt. M8, was charged Monday with assault causing bodily injury.

Kemp allegedly argued with his wife’s grandson about a bicycle.

According to a complaint by Iowa City Police, Kemp allegedly grabbed the neck of the 14-year-old and threw him to the ground. Complaints said the alleged victim then stood and pushed Kemp, and Kemp retaliated by grabbing the 14-year-old by the neck, choking him, and punching him in the face.

The 14-year-old had cuts on the inside of his bottom lip and a scratch on his neck, which he contended were both caused by Kemp.

Assault causing bodily injury is a serious misdemeanor publishable by up to one year in jail and a fine of $1,875.
