Man Accused Of Beating Pregnant Woman With Baseball Bat, Injecting Her With Meth

A woman who is 37 weeks pregnant was beaten with a baseball bat and injected with methamphetamine against her will in Charleston, West Virginia, on Thursday. According to the Charleston Gazette-Mail, Kyle Wilson Stowers, 21, is accused of being the man behind these despicable actions.

He has been charged with malicious wounding and is being held on a bail of $10,000. It is unclear if he has a lawyer who can speak on his behalf at this time.

The woman claimed that Stowers attacked her inside a home, striking her in the head, face, legs and torso with a wooden baseball bat numerous times. She has suffered cuts and bruises from the attack. Then, according to the woman, he left her “for dead.” Before fleeing, though, he allegedly injected meth into her arm, The Associated Press reported.

Man Accused Of Beating 5-Year-Old Boy, Covering Him In Bruises For Opening Christmas Present Early

An Oklahoma man is accused of beating his girlfriend’s 5-year-old son as punishment for opening a Christmas present early, KJRH reported.

The boy’s mother claimed that her boyfriend, Wesley McCollum, was watching her son while she went Christmas shopping on Saturday. When she came back, “nothing seemed wrong,” she said. McCollum said he had sent her son to bed early for opening a wrapped Christmas present from under the tree, she claimed. 

When she went to check on her son, she allegedly saw bruises on her son’s back and arms, marks on his forehead and a hand print on his cheek. She took a photo of his cheek and posted it on Facebook with a description of what she saw.

“Words cannot explain seeing your baby like this and having no clue what happened. I ran to him like any mother would do crying, hugging him, begging what happened,” she wrote in

16-Year-Old High School Football Player Charged With Beating Mom To Death With A Hammer

A Maryland teenager is accused of beating his own mother to death with a hammer last week. Andrew Zaragoza, 16, has been charged as an adult for the bludgeoning death of his mom, 56-year-old Donna Zaragoza, according to The Baltimore Sun. Her body was found in a bedroom of the family’s Bel Air, Maryland house.

The high school student, known for playing football, was allegedly hit by his mother the morning of the murder, according to Zaragoza’s lawyer, public defender Tim Bahr. She allegedly took pills before striking her son. Zaragoza’s father and uncle both died of drug overdoses last year.

“He is a victim of abuse throughout his life, mental abuse, emotional abuse and physical abuse,” Bahr said before a judge on Saturday.

Andrew Zaragoza had also suffered self-inflicted stab wounds, ABC2 reported.

Police had been called to the family home previously for drug abuse, domestic problems, and mental health concerns.

Police Accused Of Beating And Unleashing K9 Dog On Teen Girl After Mistaking Her For Bald Man

A 5’2, 115-pound teenage girl in California was punched in the mouth by police, bitten by a K9 and arrested last month after she was mistaken for a machete-wielding 5’11, 180-pound bald man with a goatee.

The NAACP’s Bakersfield chapter released a Facebook video Monday morning calling the incident racially motivated. In it, Tatyana Hargrove, 19, described the events that took place. She says she was walking home after shopping for a Father’s Day gift. She was then approached by an officer who drew his gun as soon as he got out of his patrol car.

“He [the officer] put his other knee on my head, and I told him, ‘I can’t breathe, I can’t breathe’ and I started yelling out: ‘Somebody help me, somebody help me, they’re going to kill me,’” Hargrove said in the video.

After the incident, Hargrove had to be hospitalized for the injuries she allegedly sustained from

Video Shows Bullies Beating Classmate In School Bathroom 2 Days Before He Hung Himself

Surveillance video shows bullies at a Cincinnati elementary school brutally beating a boy, who took his life two days later. Students are seen kicking and hitting an unconscious 8-year-old boy for five minutes in a bathroom at Carson Elementary School in January, according to a report obtained by the Cincinnati Enquirer. It is not entirely clear at this time how the boy became unconscious in the first place. 

“I witnessed behavior that in my belief is bullying and could even rise to the level of criminal assault,” if not for their ages, a police detective said, according to that report.

Gabriel Taye hanged himself from his bunk bed two days after the vicious attack, according to the New York Daily News. According to Cincinnati.com, Cincinnati Public Schools said on Thursday that it would release the security camera video of the assault from inside Carson Elementary School. Before its release, video will
