SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

A Coralville woman allegedly scratched a man several times in his face.

Asia Lucus, 22, was charged Tuesday with fifth-degree criminal mischief, domestic abuse causing bodily injury/mental illness, and second-degree robbery.

According to a Coralville police complaint, Lucus pushed and scratched the man’s face after they got into an argument when he went to her apartment. The man tried to get away from Lucus, the complaint said.

As Lucus reached for a phone in the victim’s sweatshirt pocket, she ended up ripping the pocket. The man tried to block Lucus’ hand but was scratched in the face again, the complaint said.

The man told officers that Lucus took his iPhone and two $20 bills, which were found in Lucus’ possession, the complaint said.

Fifth-degree criminal mischief is a simple misdemeanor. Domestic abuse causing bodily injury/mental illness is a serious misdemeanor. Second-degree robbery is a Class-C felony.
