A Brandon man has been arrested for allegedly attacking his estranged girlfriend and threatening her unborn child.
The victim told police between April 8th and 13th, the 29-year-old punched her in the stomach several times in an attempt to cause her to miscarry.
Brandon Police Sargent Kevin McLean tells 680 CJOB the incident is unusual.
“This is a severe attempt to injure someone and injure an unborn child, which is awful.”
McLean says the woman wasn’t severely injured, but it’s unknown if the unborn child is still alive.
The accused remains behind bars at the Brandon Correctional Center and faces assault causing bodily harm and uttering threat charges.
