A pregnant woman said her ex-boyfriend hit her with a box of doughnuts, according to a Columbia Police Department incident report.

The incident happened just after 11 a.m. Wednesday on the 1800 block of Main Street, according to the report.

The 35-year-old victim said her ex-boyfriend “assaulted her in the face with a box of doughnuts,” police wrote in the report. She and the suspect had lived together previously.

It was not clear what prompted the sugary assault.
