An Iowa City man is in jail after he admitted to biting another man in the arm and trying to hit him with a rock.

Officers responded to a fight at the 200 block of South Linn Street near the Bread Garden Bakery around noon Tuesday. Rickie Roberts, 36, told police he bit the man and tried to hit him with a rock because he believed the man stole his property. Police say the man didn't strike Roberts back.

According to criminal complaints, the man had a bite mark from Roberts on his left arm.

Roberts was transported to the Johnson County Sheriff's Office and is charged with assault causing bodily injury, a serious misdemeanor.
