York City man allegedly assaulted pregnant woman
A York City man is accused of assaulting the woman who is pregnant with his child, according to police.
Felix Luis Rosario, 22, of the 900 block of West Poplar Street, allegedly choked the woman late last month after the two got into a "heated" argument, documents state.
York City Police charged Rosario with aggravated assault, aggravated assault of an unborn child and strangulation.
Allegations: Police were sent to a restaurant in the 1000 block of West Princess Street about 12:30 a.m. April 29 for a report of a domestic assault. The victim, according to court documents, was six months pregnant at the time of the assault.
When police arrived, Rosario was preventing the woman from leaving the restaurant, police said. He walked away from her when police arrived, according to charging documents.
Rosario told police the two got into a "heated argument" earlier, and said "I grabbed her, and I threw her on the bed," police said. Rosario went to the restaurant to apologize to the woman for "using so much force against her," court documents state.
The victim told police that Rosario came up behind her, put his arm around her throat and pulled her to the bed, police said. She said she was not able to breathe, documents state.
The victim said Rosario got on top of her and put his knee into her stomach on top of the baby, and she told him to stop, according to police.
"It's my baby, too," Rosario allegedly said.
Rosario was arraigned on the charges later that morning and was then remanded to York County Prison in lieu of $25,000 bail. An attorney is not listed for him.
His preliminary hearing is scheduled for 9 a.m. Friday, May 12, at District Judge Joel Toluba's office.
