An Iowa City man has been accused of entering a person's house in order to retrieve his 7-year-old niece.

Jackie Clark, 34, 3112 E. Court St., was charged June 15 with second-degree burglary.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, Clark arrived at an apartment on Muscatine Avenue because he believed his 7-year-old niece was being sexually abused by an adult staying at the residence.

Clark and a codefendant allegedly forcefully entered the victim's apartment, and the victim demanded they leave. The codefendant allegedly pushed the victim against the wall, and Clark began striking the victim in the face.

Second-degree burglary is a Class-C felony.
