DES MOINES (AP) -

A Des Moines woman has told police that her husband used a sandwich to assault her.

The Des Moines Register reports that 21-year-old Marvin Hill II was arrested Tuesday. Polk County Jail records say Hill remained in custody on Wednesday on a charge of domestic abuse assault. Online court records don't list an attorney for him.

Initially Hill told officers that his wife had assaulted him. He said she awakened him about 1 p.m., holding a McDonald's McChicken sandwich.

He later acknowledged that he became upset and threw the sandwich at his wife because he doesn't like them.

Officers say Hill's wife had mayonnaise on her shirt and face when they talked to her. She says Hill also smashed the bun into her face.
