Authorities have accused an Iowa City man with breaking into a residence and threatening to take someone’s life.

Vernard Archer, 30, was charged with first-degree burglary and two charges of intimidation with a dangerous weapon.

According to online court documents, Archer entered a woman’s apartment while she was asleep on the couch.

Once she woke up, Archer shoved her down, held a knife to her neck, and threatened to kill her.

Archer fled when the woman screamed and alerted other residents that she was being attacked.
He was soon found by police officers and positively identified by the woman.

First-degree burglary is a Class-B felony. Intimidation with a dangerous weapon is a Class-C felony.
