A man has been charged with viciously assaulting his pregnant girlfriend in an attack which was caught on camera. Wesley M. McCall allegedly punched and kicked his victim so hard in the face and head, she fell to the floor and suffered a seizure.
Footage, obtained by The Jersey Journal, shows the woman being chased before she is thrown to the ground and kicked in the face once.
McCall, 23, was arrested on Thursday and charged with second-degree aggravated assault following the incident earlier this month.
The Jersey City man appeared in court yesterday where his bail was doubled to $100,000 on the grounds of the brutality of the alleged attack.
Hudson County Assistant Prosecutor John Mulkeen told NJ.com:
Mulkeen said of the video of the attack was filmed by a passerby on February 17 at Ocean Avenue and Stegman Parkway.
McCall's defence lawyer Frank Gonzalez said the victim's injuries did not appear sufficient to support a second-degree assault charge.
Gonzalez noted that the only injury to the woman noted in the complaint was a cut to her chin. Lawyers tho.
