A local man has been arrested after allegedly forcing his teenage nephew’s head into a corner of a wall in their home.

Shawn Martin, 28, was accused Feb. 9 with child endangerment.

Iowa City police officials responded to a report in which a 15-year-old said he was physically assaulted by Martin. Martin said he was disciplining his nephew. During the incident, Martin allegedly choked, punched, pushed, and grabbed the teen by his neck. Martin then reportedly pushed teen’s head to the corner of a wall, causing pain and a large contusion to his head, the police complaint said.
