An Ottumwa man faces multiple charges after police say he attacked another man on Saturday.
33-year-old Jay McIntosh has been charged with willful injury (Class C felony), second-degree burglary (Class D felony), and interference with official acts (simple misdemeanor).
On July 30th, court records say McIntosh approached an occupied vehicle on North Ward Street and reached at the victim through an occupied window, and attempted to strike him. The victim was able to roll up the window of his car to avoid being hit.
According to Ottumwa police, McIntosh put his hands around the victim in an attempt to choke him. Soon after, McIntosh grabbed and twisted the victim’s genitals. The victim later told officers he believed McIntosh was trying to forcibly detach his genitals from his body.
McIntosh was told by law enforcement that he was being detained. McIntosh allegedly became belligerent and refused to follow the officers’ orders and was placed under arrest. Court documents say McIntosh repeatedly pulled his arm away from the officers that were attempting to take him into custody.
McIntosh was transported to the Wapello County Jail. His bail has been set at $15,000.
McIntosh entered a not guilty plea during a Monday court appearance.
