CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) - A Cedar Rapids man is facing charges after police said he allegedly kicked a 17-year-old in the face, causing a fracture to her nose.

On Thursday morning, police were called to an assault at 1814 Hoover Trail Court SW.

Officers said they found 39-year-old Jason Koelker bleeding from the hand. He reportedly used a large knife to stab a door so hard that it drove his hand forward, causing an injury.

Prior to his injury, officers said Koelker kicked a 17-year-old in the face, fracturing her nose.

Koelker was booked on child endangerment charges after his release from the hospital, police said.
