Hearing Delayed In Drill Attack On Pregnant Woman

Posted: Updated:

BAY CITY, Mich. (AP) - A Michigan man accused of attacking his pregnant girlfriend with a power drill returns to court next month for a probable-cause hearing.

Bay City police say 23-year-old Tyresha Humphrey told them that Jermaine Perkins slapped and kicked her, punched her in the stomach and cut her arm with a Black & Decker cordless drill Dec. 15.

Police say Humphrey was five months pregnant by a previous boyfriend. She says the 23-year-old Perkins wanted her to miscarry.

Police say Perkins told them Humphrey attacked him with the drill, and he defended himself.

Perkins is charged with assault with a dangerous weapon and domestic violence.

A judge postponed a probable-cause hearing from Monday to Jan. 10. Perkins remains free on bond.
