Police charge local man with burglary, enhanced assault

A local man is charged with burglary after allegedly breaking into a neighbor's house and assaulting him.

Ngor Kuanj, 27, faces several charges related to a Thursday incident where he allegedly assaulted his girlfriend in front of his 2-year-old and 16-month old children, said Capt. Mike Hanken, with the Marshalltown Police Department.

When Kuanj allegedly assaulted his 21-year-old girlfriend, he and a neighbor in the couple's apartment building at 112 North St. got into a shouting match that ended with Kuanj breaking into the neighbor's apartment, shoving him to the ground and repeatedly punching him in the face, threatening to kill him, Hanken said.

Hanken said Kuanj fled the apartment when police arrived. Police apprehended him at Fifth and Fremont Streets.

Police charged Kuanj with domestic abuse, enhanced to a Class D felony due to three prior convictions, second-degree burglary, also a Class D felony, two counts of child endangerment without injury, aggravated misdemeanors, and interference with official acts, a simple misdemeanor.
