Authorities have accused an Iowa City man of assaulting his spouse.

Jon Jorgensen, 28, was charged March 1 with third or subsequent offense domestic-abuse assault.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, Jorgensen and the woman have been married for roughly a year and a half, and they were sitting in the living room of their apartment.

The woman was ignoring Jorgensen. He allegedly stood up and struck her three times, after saying, “What did you say, bitch?” Reportedly, the first two strikes were open-handed, followed by a closed-fist strike. Jorgensen said he was going to break the woman’s nose.

The woman had a cut lip and blood on her shirt, along with broken glasses.

Jorgensen has two previous domestic-abuse assault convictions from 2002 and 2012.

Third or subsequent offense domestic-abuse assault is a Class-D felony.
