An Iowa City woman is accused of ripping a door off a house and striking her boyfriend because he refused to have sex with her.

Melissa B. Minarsich, 28, of 131 Taft Speedway, is charged with domestic abuse assault, second offense, after the argument at 10:24 p.m. Monday at her residence.

Officers were called to the residence for a report of a female out of control. Minarsich's boyfriend, with whom she has an 8-month-old son, said she became upset when he refused to have sex with her, according to police reports.

Minarsich, who smelled strongly of alcohol and had slurred speech, admitted to police this was the case.

"All I want is a piece of ass, is that too much to ask for?" Minarsich asked the police.

Minarsich is accused of hitting her boyfriend a few times without injury and ripping the storm door off the house.

She was convicted of domestic assault in Iowa in 2009, according to records.
