A pregnant woman told police Thursday that she was assaulted by her boyfriend.
Richmond County authorities were called to University Hospital about 1:15 p.m. and spoke with a 27-year-old woman who said her boyfriend, also the father of her unborn child, punched her in the face and head several times with a closed fist, according to an incident report.
The woman, who is eight months pregnant, said she was walking on Richmond Hill Road with her boyfriend when he became angry and struck her several times in the face.
The responding deputy saw a knot above the woman’s right eye, a cut on her lip and swelling on her face. She told police that planned to prosecute.
There was no report of an arrest Thursday night.
