Woman Says she was Beaten While Holding Baby

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - An Iowa City woman has reported being beaten and choked while holding her 4-month-old baby.

The Iowa City Press-Citizen says the woman told officers early Sunday morning that her attacker was the man she lived with, the father of her child.

Police say 21-year-old Jose Luis Avalos-Covarrubias was arrested and was charged with domestic assault by impeding air/blood and with child endangerment with no injury.

The woman reported that Avalos-Covarrubias choked her until she was unconscious and struck her several times while she was holding their baby.

Online records say Avalos-Covarrubias remained in Johnson County Jail on Monday. Online court records don't list the name of his attorney.
