A Grundy Center, Iowa, man was charged Tuesday after allegedly trying to strangle a woman at the University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics. 

According to a complaint by UI police, Lucas Cooper, 24, was lying in a hospital bed next to a woman in the UIHC Carver Pavilion Tuesday when he allegedly used high pressure on the woman’s throat and chin with one hand, using his other to cover her nose and mouth.

The complaint said Cooper’s alleged strangulation caused the woman to have a headache and experience dizziness. She had a sore throat and a scratch on her neck after the incident, the complaint said.

Cooper is charged with domestic assault with strangulation, a Class-D felony.
