A local man was charged Oct. 12 after an alleged sexual assault at 3042 Muscatine Ave. Apt. 28.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, Russell Williams, 25, address unknown, was charged after officers received a report from a woman who claimed she had been sexually assaulted by Williams on the floor of the apartment.

The complaint said the woman had a red right cheek and claimed Williams slapped her across the face twice. The woman said this wasn’t the first time something like this had happened, according to the complaint.

Williams and the woman were in a seven-month relationship that ended recently, the complaint said.

Williams allegedly admitted to slapping the victim after she struck him on the left side of his head but denied committing a sexual act against the woman’s will.

Williams is charged with third-degree sexual assault, a Class-C felony.
