Man who threatened to ‘cut the baby out’ of ex-girlfriend charged with assault of an unborn child
UPPER DARBY, PA, September 11, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A Pennsylvania man has been charged with assaulting an unborn child after police say he “threatened to cut the baby” out of his ex-girlfriend’s stomach.
Police in Upper Darby arrested 29-year-old James Lynch of Ambler on August 26. Officers say he dragged his ex down a flight of stairs and around her apartment in Westbrook Park.
“Apparently this is the second time he beat her up,” said Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood, who called the actions “cowardly.”
“This time he threatened to cut the baby out of her stomach,” Chitwood told The Daily Times of Delaware County.
The mother was treated at Delaware County Memorial Hospital, while Lynch allegedly fled the scene in her car.
