COOK COUNTY CRIMINAL COURTHOUSE — A man assaulted his pregnant girlfriend and threatened his unborn child because he was hungry and wanted her to come home Saturday in Rogers Park, according to court documents.
Lucas Campuzano, 22, of the 1600 block of West Sherwin Avenue, was charged with misdemeanor simple assault and two counts of misdemeanor domestic battery.
Cops were called to the 7200 block of North Ashland Avenue, where Campuzano's 34-year-old girlfriend told them through a witness and interpreter that her boyfriend grabbed and shook her multiple times to get her to come home because he was hungry, according to a police arrest document.
The woman, who told police she was nine months pregnant with his child, said Campuzano then used a closed fist to press hard into her stomach and threatened to hurt their unborn child if she didn't come with him, according to the documents.
After a struggle, her boyfriend fled the scene, and cops later arrested him at his home. Further investigation revealed multiple recent incidents in which Campuzano threatened or assaulted his girlfriend, according to the documents.
The woman was taken to St. Francis Hospital for stomach pain and held there for observation, according to the documents.
Judge Adam Bourgeois Jr. ordered Campuzano held on $50,000 bail in bond court on Sunday.
