Minnesota man punches girlfriend in attempt to end pregnancy

PRESCOTT, WI (WTAQ) - Authorities in far western Wisconsin said an 18-year-old man punched a pregnant woman several times in the stomach, to try-and-kill the unborn baby they conceived.

Prescott Police arrested the man on possible charges of first-degree intentional homicide of an unborn child, and domestic battery.

The incident occurred on Wednesday night. Charges were still pending.

Prescott Police said the 27-year-old woman was staying at a motel with the suspect – and they got into a domestic argument before he punched her and tried to end her pregnancy.

The man told police he lived in Saint Paul Minnesota.
