A man has been charged with first-degree burglary, among other charges, Iowa City police say.

According to a police complaint, James Ward, 28, was charged Oct. 20, 2011; the other charges he faces are domestic-assault, second offense, criminal tresspassing causing injury, and fifth-degree criminal mischief.

Ward was allegedly involved in a domestic dispute with the victim earlier in the day. According to the complaint, Town & Campus management reported Ward was banned from the property because of previous incidents.

During the first investigation, Ward was allegedly removed from the properties as he became upset over a civil matter involving a laptop. According to the complaint, after Ward was removed he returned again, kicked in the victim's front door, entered without permission, assaulted the victim, and caused injury.

Ward then allegedly took the laptop and fled the victim's apartment.

First-degree burglary is considered a Class-B felony and is punishable of up to 25 years in prison.
