A West Virginia man was charged Thursday after he allegedly hit a pregnant woman with a baseball bat, and injected her with methamphetamine without her consent earlier this month.
Police say the 21-year-old Kyle Wilson Stowers, of Charleston, struck a woman who was 37 weeks pregnant, in the head, the face, the trunk and the legs with a baseball bat on Dec. 21, the Charleston Gazette reported.
Before he fled the scene, Stowers then allegedly “inadvertently injected what [the woman] states was methamphetamine in her right arm.”
The woman told the police Stowers “left her for dead.” The authorities will not say what Stowers’ motive was.
Stowers, who was caught by Charleston police shortly after he fled, is charged with assault, and his bail is set at $10,000.
