Peng Tang, an Iowa City man charged with first-degree kidnapping, has changed attorneys.

Tang, 21, 923 E. College St. No. 8, will now be represented by Eric Tindal and Clemens Erdahl, according to online court documents.

Tang allegedly kidnapped and assaulted a woman while viewing her apartment for a potential sublease. He reportedly stuffed a towel in the victim's mouth and took explicit photos of her, threatening to post them on the Internet if she informed police, according to an Iowa City police press release.

Tang was charged March 30 with first-degree kidnapping. He also faces a tampering-with-a-witness charge.

Tang's was previously represented by Ray Reel.

Tang is in custody on a $800,000 cash-only bond and immigration hold at the Johnson County Jail.
