IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - Iowa City police have charged a man with aggravated animal torture who they say abused his roommate’s kitten for hours.

The Iowa City Press-Citizen reports (https://icp-c.com/1F2AJK6 ) 21-year-old Leo Nopoulos of West Liberty was released from the Johnson County Jail Wednesday after posting $5,000 bond.

A University of Iowa student says his 8-week-old cat named Fritz is alive, but lost one eye and doesn’t have vision in the other. He set up his laptop earlier this month to monitor Fritz while he was away.

Police say the video shows Nopoulos punching, kicking and throwing objects at the kitten. They say the attack lasted “nonstop” for longer than three hours last week.

It wasn’t immediately clear if Nopoulos has an attorney.
