PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A 31-year-old man is in custody after police say he allegedly kicked a pregnant woman in the stomach.
Police arrested Omar Palmer on Tuesday.
Palmer is accused of attacking the woman outside a Center City Dunkin Donuts on Feb. 11.
The incident happened around 10:30 a.m. when authorities say the 33-year-old victim was outside the Dunkin Donuts at 10th and Arch Streets. That’s when Palmer allegedly approached her and asked for $2.
The woman says she didn’t have money and Palmer then kicked her in the stomach, authorities say.
She was taken to the hospital and is expected to be OK.
Kinebrew says Palmer is well known to area officers.
“We are very happy we got this person off the street, very heinous to do that,” Kinebrew said.
Palmer faces aggravated assault and aggravated assault of an unborn child, among other offenses.
