— Warrants have been issued for a Rock Hill man accused of assaulting his pregnant girlfriend, throwing money in her face, banging her head against a wall and biting her on her right hand, police say.

Police were sent to Piedmont Medical Center’s emergency room after receiving reports of an assault, according to a Rock Hill police report. They spoke with the victim, 22, who told police her boyfriend, 34, came in from a night of drinking and started yelling at her.

The woman, who is eight months pregnant, told police the man threw money in her face, the report states. The victim asked the man to leave her alone, but he grabbed her hair and hit her head against the wall as he shouted threats.

The woman tried to get away from the suspect, but he fell on top of her on a nearby bed, the report states. The suspect began hitting the victim in her face and bit her on the right hand. The woman managed to free herself from her assailant and ran outside. She called paramedics because she had a hard time breathing. While she sat on the steps, the man fell down on her again, the report states.

Paramedics realized the man pulled “a plug of hair” from the victim’s head and scratched her under the left eye, the report states. The woman also had a bump on the left side of her head.

Police were unable to find the man, whose name police would not release. Authorities issued an arrest warrant charging him with criminal domestic violence.
