A Davenport teen was in Scott County Jail Monday after allegedly throwing a pot of hot coffee at a 69-year-old woman and punching an 11-year-old girl in the face New Year's Day.
Joshua R. Lacey, 19, no address available, has been charged with second-degree burglary, intimidation with a dangerous weapon and two counts of simple assault. He was being held in jail on $23,400 bond.
Police say a man broke through a back door at a house in the 2100 block of W. Glaspell Street, Davenport, about 2:15 p.m. Saturday, and assaulted the woman and girl, according to the affidavit filed in Scott County District Court.
Davenport police spokesman Lt. Don Gano said Mr. Lacey knew the people inside, but was not sure of the relationship between them.
There were 11 people in the house at the time, and relatives of the victims told the suspect to leave before calling police, the affidavit states. When police arrived, the man was gone, but after officers left, he returned, the affidavit states.
Family members told police they watched the teen throw a brick through a large picture window on the south side of the living room, the affidavit states.
Mr. Lacey was arrested as he walked away from the house, the affidavit states.
