LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB Fox 41) -- Police say a Louisville man is charged with attempted fetal homicide after he admitted to kicking his pregnant girlfriend.
Police say it all started when Ruben Anthony got angry with his girlfriend because she would not, "watch TV or use her phone." At this point, the 21-year-old allegedly became violent, striking her in the mouth with his fist and causing swelling and a minor cut. Police say that's when he kicked her in the stomach. She is four months pregnant
Anthony was already taking anger management classes due to a previous domestic violence incident with his sister, according to the arrest report.
Police arrested Anthony Friday afternoon at his home in the 600 block of E. Ormsby St. Police say that, as he was being arrested, he "continuously yelled at [the victim], attempting to induce her to avoid prosecuting [him] or to influence her testimony.
Anthony has been charged with attempted fetal homicide, wanton endangerment, assault and intimidating a participant in a legal process.
