SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The trial for an Iowa City man accused of first-degree kidnapping in connection with an alleged sexual assault was continued Oct. 5, according to one of his attorneys.

According to the Iowa City police, 21-year-old Peng Tang was being shown an apartment for a possible sublease by the alleged victim when he locked her in the bedroom and tied her hands behind her back. Tang allegedly stuffed a towel in the woman’s mouth and assaulted her.

Eric Tindal, one of Tang’s attorneys, said his trial was continued to February 2013.

Tang’s hearing was previously continued because of conflicts with police officers and security personnel in connection with President Obama’s September visit. The hearing, which was finished on Oct. 5, continued the focus on Tang’s knowledge of his Miranda rights before police began questioning him.
