Woman Charged with Assault on Unborn Child
SPRING TOWNSHIP — Police in Snyder County have charged a woman with assaulting an unborn child. She’s accused of hitting a woman who was 8 months pregnant with a car door.
Police said it happened in a parking lot near Middleburg earlier this month. Investigators said it started as an argument between a mother and her ex-boyfriend. As they argued, officers said the man’s new girlfriend April Yocum of Middleburg hit Amanda Todd with a car door.
Todd was 8 months pregnant. Police said she was knocked to the ground. Yocum drove off. When Todd got to the hospital, police said it was difficult for medical personnel to find a heartbeat for the baby.
Yocum talked with Newswatch 16 and said this has been blown out of proportion. She said the baby was born Monday and is okay.
