An Iowa City man has been accused of domestic abuse against his live-in girlfriend.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, Fermin Lagos, 19, was charged Nov. 25 with domestic-abuse assault.

Lagos and his girlfriend were sitting at home watching television, according to the police report.

Lagos had been drinking, and he and a friend were reportedly writing the names of other women on his shorts. The upset female asked Lagos why he was doing this, and he became upset that she was questioning him.

Lagos allegedly began hitting her in the face numerous times with closed fists, causing severe bruising around the head, face, and eyes, the complaint said.

Lagos’ girlfriend had two swollen, black eyes with the right eye being particularly dark red, according to the report.

Upon arrival at the hospital, doctors further diagnosed Lagos’ girlfriend with a concussion.

Intended domestic abuse is an aggravated misdemeanor punishable up to two years in prison with a maximum fine of $6,250.
