An Iowa City woman has been charged after allegedly following a woman to her house and assaulting her.

Tiaunta Martin, 23, 2401 Highway 6 E. No. 400, was charged June 4 with assault causing bodily injury.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, Martin and another woman attacked a 17-year-old female. Martin was inside Taco Bell when the victim was in an argument with another woman.

The complaint said Martin followed the victim near her house and assaulted her. Martin and the other female allegedly struck the victim several times in the face, causing small lacerations and a black eye.
