A Coralville man has been charged with assaulting a person.

Marcus Abbott, 26, was charged March 19 with third or subsequent domestic-abuse assault.

According to a Johnson County Sheriff's Office complaint, Abbott and a woman got into an argument after he saw hickeys on her neck. Abott allegedly struck her in the mouth with a closed fist, causing swollen lips and a small laceration.

Abbott also reportedly shoved the woman down, causing her to re-fracture an ankle, and he reportedly kicked her, which caused bruising on her legs.

According to the complaint, Abbott has three prior convictions for domestic-abuse assault on Feb. 25, 2009, Aug. 23, 2009, and Nov. 17, 2010.

Third or subsequent domestic-abuse assault is considered a Class-D felony.
