Florida man punches pregnant woman in the stomach
A Fort Walton Beach man was arrested last week for repeatedly punching a pregnant woman in the stomach.
Okaloosa deputies said Tyree Dante Jones, 22, went to the home of the woman on Navy Street and waited for her to come outside.
Once she came outside, deputies said Jones pulled her in the front yard and began hitting her in the stomach.
The victim said Jones is the father of the baby.
A witness say the incident and said Jones hit the woman at least four times, saying 'he wanted to kill the baby,' and threatened to shoot up the victim's home and her mother's home.
Jones fled the scene before deputies arrived.
The attack happened on March 19 and Jones was arrested three days later.
Jones was charged with aggravated battery on a victim known to be pregnant.
