Police looking for man accused of choking ex-girlfriend

Jared Alvin Kupka, 38, of Tama, remains at large after allegedly assaulting his ex-girlfriend.

A police record states that on Aug. 1 he called his ex-girlfriend and allegedly threatened to decapitate her. Later that day, he went to the woman's house in Marshalltown and the two began arguing about a Harley Davidson motorcycle. The woman had purchased the motorcycle but Kupka wanted it and when she declined to tell him where it was he allegedly began choking the woman while threatening to kill her.

Police had spent part of the day trying to find Kupka to serve him with a no-contact order regarding the woman.

He is accused of first-degree harassment and domestic abuse assault by strangulation, both aggravated misdemeanors carrying a maximum of two years in prison on each count.
