Police arrested a Coralville man after he allegedly broke into a home on Newton Road over the weekend.

Jarvis Woods, 49, was charged Sept. 18 with second-degree burglary, second-degree robbery, second-degree theft, two counts of assault causing bodily injury, possession of marijuana, fourth-degree criminal mischief, and interference with official acts causing bodily injury.

Woods was apprehended after Iowa City police officers responded to a fight in progress at a Newton Road, where Woods allegedly forced entry into the someone's apartment.

Woods was inside the apartment when the alleged victims came home, the complaint said. One of the alleged victims confronted Woods, who then allegedly tried to return a stolen laptop to the victim so that the victim would let him leave.

Woods allegedly grabbed one of the victims by his lanyard and choked him with it, punching him in the face. Woods then allegedly slammed the victim's head into a Porta-Potty outside the residence.
