A McCallsburg man has been arrested after court documents show he bit and punched a woman, and threatened to burn her house down.
Kevin J. Browne, 56, is charged with assault with injury, first-degree harassment, public intoxication, and supplying alcohol to a minor.
According to court documents, a deputy with the Story County Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of a suspicious person in McCallsburg. Documents show that while the deputy was en route, the suspicious person — later identified as Browne — called 911 saying he was beat up and needed a ride to Ames. The deputy reportedly met with Browne at the McCallsburg Church, where Brown told the deputy he had been assaulted.
Documents show that while the deputy was speaking with Browne, a vehicle pulled up and the driver said that Browne had assaulted her mother. When the victim showed up, documents said that she had noticeable scrape marks on her forearm. The victim told the deputy that Browne provided her 15-year-old son with alcohol. When she noticed that her son was intoxicated, she told Browne to immediately leave, court documents show.
According to documents, the victim then followed Browne around the house while he was packing his belongings to insure he was not stealing from them, at which point he became angry and bit her left forearm before punching her in both of her upper arms.
Court document show that as Browne was leaving the house he yelled at her and said he was going to burn her house down, and that she “will be sorry.”
As of Friday afternoon, Browne was being held in Story County Jail on $4,300 bond.
Assault with injury and supplying alcohol to a minor are both serious misdemeanors, and first-degree harassment is an aggravated misdemeanor. If convicted, Browne could face three years in jail.
