NATIONAL NEWS (CNN) — A Selldan Street man who became enraged after his pregnant girlfriend told him to stop urinating in their bedroom was charged early Saturday with assault of a pregnant woman, disorderly conduct, and two counts of risk of injury to a minor.
Renan Ortiz, 25, had apparently been drinking in the hours before the confrontation at about midnight Thursday with his girlfriend, police said. In response to her request that he stop urinating in their bedroom, he said that he could do what he wanted, police said.
When she again told him to stop, he became angry and struck her several times in the face.
The girlfriend, who is seven months pregnant, refused medical treatment, police said. Ortiz was held in lieu of $25,000 bail and was to be arraigned Monday in Superior Court in Hartford.
