Police say the man, 30-year-old Man Chun John Ma, struck the elderly woman in the back. Her husband confronted the man, while she nursed arm and shoulder pain, according to a local report.

Officers say Ma admitted the attack and said he had acted wrongly, but he thought opposing abortion was “strange.”

Authorities charged Ma with assault causing bodily injury. He was reportedly released from Johnson County Jail that evening.

The man, who hails from Hong Kong, is a graduate student in the University of Iowa's Carver College of Medicine's pharmacology program and enrolled in its interdisciplinary graduate program in genetics. [More]
