    Jonathan Michael Boggs, 28.

    Police say an Iowa man attacked his girlfriend with a hammer because she refused to let him tattoo his name on her chest.

    The Sioux City Journal reports that 28-year-old Jonathan Michael Boggs has been charged with aggravated domestic assault and going armed with intent.

    Police say Boggs of Sioux City had been dating the woman for about a month when, on Friday, he suggested the tattoo. She refused, an argument ensued and she tried to leave the house. Boggs stopped her from leaving, threatened to kill her with a hammer then assaulted her with the tool.

    Boggs was being held Tuesday in the Woodbury County Jail on $10,000 bond and could not be reached for comment.
