NEVADA, Iowa — A 31-year-old man has been arrested, accused of punching two prosecutors in the Story County courthouse.

Online records say Major Louis Robinson II was arrested Tuesday and is being held on $24,000 bail.

County Attorney Stephen Holmes says the prosecutors were approached in the courthouse in Nevada on Tuesday evening. Holmes says one was punched in the face and then another was punched when he went to help his colleague.

Holmes says the Legislature should make the penalty for assaulting a prosecutor just as severe as the penalty for assaulting a police officer.

Robinson's attorney didn't immediately return a call Friday from The Associated Press.
