A Jupiter man dragged his 7-1/2 month pregnant girlfriend out of a car and repeatedly kicked her in the stomach, according to a Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office arrest report.
Deputies rushed to the 6700 block of Mitchell Street in Jupiter around 8:40 a.m. Tuesday after a witness said a young boy came to their door and said, "He's beating my mother."
The witness watched as a man later identified as Theodore "Teddy" Greifzu, 21, yanked his pregnant girlfriend out of a car by her feet.
The woman's head hit the vehicle frame and ground. Once she was out, Greifzu repeatedly kicked her in the stomach as she yelled for help and for him to stop, according to the report.
The witnesses, a couple in their 60s, tried to step in to help the woman and called authorities.
Deputies said they found Greifzu pacing back and forth outside his home but no sign of his girlfriend inside what appeared to be a ransacked home. The deputy stepped back outside to find the woman crying in the street.
He faces charges of resisting arrest, two counts of battery on a law enforcement officer, obstruction and aggravated battery on a pregnant woman. He was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail Tuesday and released Wednesday after posting $6,000 bail.
