CORALVILLE (KWWL) -

A Coralville man was arrested Thursday morning after police say he threatened to kill a cab driver.

Officers were called to 900 block of Boston Way in Coralville at about 1:15 a.m. Thursday for a report of someone threatening to kill another person.

When they arrived, a cab driver told officers that he gave Stephen Paul Freyermuth, 24, a ride from Iowa City to Boston Way and when they arrived, Freyermuth tried to strangle him with his hands and with the seat belt while saying "I'm going to kill you".

Police say Freyermuth ran from the scene, but was found in the same area a short time later.  The cab driver identified Freyermuth as the person who attacked him.

Freyermuth is charged with assault with intent to inflict serious injury and fourth degree criminal mischief.
