An Iowa City man has been accused of punching another person numerous times in the face.

Shawn Rasmussen, 19, was charged on Nov. 1, 2013, with first-degree burglary and assault causing injury.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, officers responded to a report of an assault on Nov. 1.

They determined Rasmussen and other males were involved in an altercation previously in the night.

While inside the house, Rasmussen and the other males allegedly began assaulting everyone inside, the complaint said.

Rasmussen was identified as one of the males who entered the house, threw a small coffee table, and punched a person numerous times in the face, causing injuries.

Rasmussen admitted to being at the scene, but he denied assaulting anyone, the complaint said.

First-degree burglary is a Class-B felony. Assault causing injury is a serious misdemeanor.
