Police: Man Attacks Pregnant Girlfriend With Drill

BAY CITY, Mich. (AP) – Michigan authorities have filed felony assault charges against a man they say attacked his pregnant girlfriend with a power drill.

Bay City police say that 23-year-old Tyresha Humphrey told them that Jermaine Perkins slapped and kicked her, punched her in the stomach and cut her arm with a Black & Decker cordless drill Dec. 15.

MLive.com says the 23-year-old Perkins is charged with assault with a dangerous weapon and domestic violence. He’s free on bond awaiting a probable cause hearing Monday.

The Associated Press left a phone message for defense lawyer Bruce Mannikko seeking comment Thursday.

Police say Humphrey was five months pregnant by a previous boyfriend. She says Perkins wanted her to miscarry.

Police say Perkins told them Humphrey attacked him with the drill, and he defended himself.
