DESTIN – A man who lay on top of his pregnant girlfriend’s stomach during an argument was charged with aggravated battery and kidnapping.
The 39-year-old man, who lives in a camper with his girlfriend and their 1-year-old child, pushed her down and then lay on her, causing a significant amount of pressure, according to his Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office arrest report.
The victim is seven months pregnant.
During a fight over a phone, he punched her in the face.
She threw him off of her to protect her unborn child, at which point he broke the phone in half.
She then fled with their 1-year-old.
When interviewed, the man told deputies he’d been on top of her and that he had broken the phone.
Witnesses saw her running away with blood pouring out of her mouth.
