Authorities have accused a Cedar Rapids man of assaulting a man.

Marquise Monnahan, 19, was charged with willful injury — causing bodily injury on Dec. 7, 2014.

According to online court documents, Monnahan was identified by two witnesses and the man as being the main aggressor who was involved in an assault that took place on Davenport Street.

Witnesses stated Monnahan punched the man in the face and continued to punch him until he was knocked to the ground. Monnahan continued to punch and kick the man while he was on the ground.

While the man was on the ground, he tried to protect his face with his hands but was kicked in the face, causing his head to hit the concrete.

The man suffered numerous marks, scrapes, and bruising to the left side of his face, as well as bruising to his jaw, which limited his ability to open his mouth and speak. He also received numerous staples on the back of his head to seal the wound from his head hitting the concrete.

Willful injury — causing bodily injury is a Class-D felony.
