Authorities have issued warrants for the arrest of two Iowa City men on burglary and sexual-abuse charges.

Earl Riley, 28, 201 Hawk Ridge Drive, and Sullivan Smith-Berry, 25, 1102 Hollywood Blvd., are suspected of committing first-degree burglary, first-degree robbery, and second-degree sexual abuse on Nov. 3.

According to the affidavit, the two broke into a locked apartment, and two male residents and a resident’s sister were inside. Smith-Berry was wearing a partial mask, the affidavit said, and was armed with an AR-style rifle.

Riley and Smith-Berry physically assaulted the two male victims, the affidavit said, kicking and stomping on them and demanding money.

Smith-Berry then gave the rifle to Riley and took the female victim into a separate room, the affidavit said. Smith-Berry sexually assault the victim, the affidavit said, and Riley held down the male victims with the rifle while this occurred.

Riley and Smith-Berry left the apartment with cash and a PlayStation 4.

DNA evidence later found on the female victim’s body matches Smith-Berry’s DNA, the affidavit said.

First-degree burglary, second-degree sexual assault, and first-degree robbery are Class-B felonies.
