An Iowa City woman has been accused of intentionally damaging another woman's clothing and threatening her with a wooden stick.

Myosha Johnson, 21, 2120 Taylor Drive, was charged Tuesday with second-degree harassment and third-degree criminal mischief.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, Johnson was having a dispute with the woman in reference to the woman's belongings.

During a confrontation, Johnson allegedly threatened the woman by grabbing a wood stick, holding it above her head, and stating, "I'm gonna beat your ass," the complaint said.

The complaint said Johnson also reportedly damaged the woman's clothing by cutting and pouring bleach on them. The damage is estimated at $723.85.

Second-degree harassment is a serious misdemeanor, and third-degree criminal mischief is a aggravated misdemeanor.
