IOWA CITY — An Iowa City man has been charged with attempted murder and domestic abuse by the Iowa City Police Department on Saturday after allegedly assaulting and firing a weapon at the victim in his home.
Officers say Quentin Williams, 29, had assaulted a victim during an altercation in his Muscatine Avenue residence in Iowa City.
Police had responded to a call for a disturbance on Nov. 27, and found the victim had sustained bruises, broken ribs and a punctured lung. The individual had to receive emergency medical care and be hospitalized, according to a criminal complaint.
Officers say Williams also threatened the victim with a firearm, firing at least two rounds as she fled the residence. One bullet was fired through the door as the victim ran out, according to the criminal complaint.
Williams told officers he had been involved in the altercation, stating he was "reckless," according to the complaint. Officers say Williams is a convicted felon, and therefore is not allowed to possess firearms legally.
Williams has been charged with attempted murder, a felony punishable by up to 25 years in prison, and willful injury causing serious injury, which can result in up to 10 years in prison. He also faces two counts of domestic abuse.
Williams also has been charged with two counts of child endangerment after officers say two children under the age of 10 were present during the altercation, according to the complaint.
He is being held at the Johnson County Jail on $164,000 cash or surety bond.
