Man accused of kicking pregnant girlfriend in stomach

Police have arrested a 38-year-old man accused of kicking his pregnant girlfriend in the stomach.

Manuel Juan-Francisco has been charged with domestic assault against his live-in girlfriend following a fight between the two on Sept. 18, said police spokeswoman Sgt. Jerri Weary.

Police were called to Erlanger hospital, where they spoke with Eulalia Manuel-Pascual, who said she was at home when her boyfriend came in from an evening out drinking. The two began to argue and he slapped her twice and kicked her twice in the stomach, she told police.

Manuel-Pascual, who is eight months pregnant, said she began having sharp pains in her stomach after being kicked, Weary said. She was taken to Erlanger, where she was placed under observation, but her current condition is not known, Weary said.
