A 23-year-old male recently confessed to punching the mother of his newborn baby at a Philadelphia medical facility. The January 2012 domestic assault incident occurred as they reportedly argued over naming their infant while his girlfriend was in the maternity ward; the suspect pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor for the occurrence. According to court documents, law enforcement personnel investigated the defendant after a domestic disturbance call from the hospital. The new mother claimed that the couple was arguing over the infant's name. The defendant kicked a table toward her. As he held the baby, he pushed the mother, and she fell. He placed the infant in a crib but continued to call the mother names, and he struck the mother in the face twice.
A Pennsylvania man was accused of injuring his girlfriend after they argued about about the topic of the "Dr. Phil" show. After the alleged domestic assault, the man was taken into custody and charged with harassment and simple assault. The couple was involved in a heated discussion about the custody of their young child as well as previous relationships. The victim told law enforcement personnel that they were watching the "Dr. Phil" show together, which was about past relationships. The show sparked the argument between the two. The suspect has admitted to the argument but denies he injured her. However, the woman had injuries that substantiated her accusations. In addition, the police found a vase that was allegedly broken during the altercation.
