A local man has been charged after allegedly pulling out a large chunk of his girlfriend’s hair.

Shelby Walker, 27, was charged on Monday with domestic-abuse assault without intent of causing injury.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, officers responded to Walker’s residence after receiving a report by his girlfriend about an assault.

Upon arrival, officers spoke with Walker and his girlfriend, as well as a witness. The two were allegedly having argument about dinner, the complaint said.

As the argument continued, Walker became upset, then allegedly pulled a chunk of his girlfriend’s hair out of her head.

She also suffered a superficial injury to her ear and side of her face, the complaint said.

The two were separated by witnesses, and Walker’s girlfriend called the police.

Domestic-abuse assault without intent of causing injury is a serious misdemeanor.
