Cop under close arrest over beating of pregnant girlfriend

A police constable in Linden is under close arrest for beating his eight-month pregnant girlfriend around 10 pm on Friday to return baby clothing he had purchased.

The officer is reported to have kicked and cuffed the woman, Solaunge London, 18, and she started to experience labour pains.

Her friend at whose Blueberry Hill, Wismar house she had been staying, rushed her to the hospital.

Reports are that after a rift in their relationship he went to the house demanding the clothing worth $20,000 that he had purchased for the baby.

When he visited, London met him at the door and instead of returning the items she ran into the bedroom and slammed the door shut.

 

He followed her and kicked open the door. He then reportedly pushed her down and started to kick and cuff her repeatedly.
