Pregnant Woman Punched, Kneed in Stomach by Brother's Girlfriend, Police Say

“If it’s up to me, you’re not going to have a child,” the woman reportedly told her boyfriend's pregnant sister. The unborn child was not harmed.

A St. Louis Park woman is accused of assaulting her boyfriend's pregnant sister, throwing her to to the ground and hitting her in the stomach.

The sister, who was three-and-a-half months pregnant, went to the hospital for stomach cramping, but her unborn child was unharmed.

Monica Williams, 33, is charged with one felony count of terroristic threats and one third-degree misdemeanor count of assault of an unborn child.

According to the criminal complaint:

On Oct. 9, Williams and her boyfriend's sister got in an argument outside Williams' apartment complex on the 3100 block of Highway 100.

Williams grabbed the sister by the hair and punched her.

“If it’s up to me, you’re not going to have a child,” Williams said, according to the complaint.

The sister said she then felt a strong blow land on her stomach.

A witness told police that she heard Williams tell the sister, "I can’t believe you had the balls to come back here after I threatened you and told you not to come back."

Williams then grabbed the sister by the hair, throwing her to the ground and placing her knee on her stomach, the witness said.

“Your baby is not going to be born," Williams said, according to the witness. "Your baby is not coming out. You’re not having a baby. It’s not going to happen.” 

Williams faces up to five years in jail and a $10,000 fine.

I think Meadowbrook and Louisiana Court may be in danger of losing the title of housing the most miscreants in the city.

Section 8 residents have no criminal records (by regulation you cannot have section 8 if you have been convicted of any crime), they make better tenants in the vast majority of cases than people without Section 8 vouchers (ask any property manager and they will confirm this -- that is why so many properties accept section 8), they are usually employed just as you are (if you work, which you didn't say), they predominately include the disabled and elderly (yep, let's put a hate on them). Your statements are offensive, bigoted and racist on their face. Grow up.

There was nothing in the aforementioned comment about race, Mr. Farland. The background of the perpetrators was not even mentioned. I guess you are excusing this violent behavior. Talk to victims of crime sometime. I don't think you would then so easily dismiss the attack on a pregnant woman,

I believe it's Ms. Farland, Mike. Regardless, I don't see anything in her comments excusing the behavior or dismissing the attack. She merely responded to the previous poster's categorization of all of the tenants based on the horrific actions of one individual.

Another fine human being from the gene pool

LOL. I did not mention race, Section 8, or disability. It seems as though Amy Farland is the one who is brings up race. This is a typical Liberal tactic. If we want to get on the subject of Section 8, that is a whole other issue in which many do have people living in their Section 8 homes with records and only pay a small portion of the rent which in many cases get subsidized through another program.
amy farland January 19, 2014 at 08:10 AM
Section 8 recipients are thrown out of the program if they are convicted of a crime involving violence or drugs. and only 5% of recipients of Section 8 aid are TANF recipients who do not work. Recipients pay 30-40% of their income towards the rent. Here are the facts on Section 8: http://www.cbpp.org/cms/?fa=view&id=3634 and Daniel, i was not speaking to you; the comment i was addressing has been deleted. But now you opened the "section 8' bigotry door.
Daniel January 19, 2014 at 01:55 PM
LOL. Section 8s are a problem. Whether or not the person enrolling for the Section 8 is a convicted criminal. They do bring bad elements into neighborhoods. These are not all elderly and infirm people. The portion that they pay is variable based upon many things. There is no incentive to get out of Section 8 since you can stay in it in perpetuity if you "qualify." Section 8s in many cases live in a much nicer home than their neighbors and people paying 100% of their rent. It is spitting upon the working class that lives in low income and/or modest homes while their Section 8 neighbor lives in a home twice the size for little of no cost.

The left side wants a more civilized community(??). The left is the FIRST to describe an incident as racist and blame the right side of bigotry and being OFFENSIVE. Yet they have no problem offending the right. Seems the words racist/racism et al are more previlant durng the past 5 years than previous years. Wasn't WJC even accused of a racist comment in 2008? Intersting how the party line "trickles down". Wonder when the left side will drag out the gender card?
amy farland January 21, 2014 at 09:35 AM
Daniel: are the complexes you mentioned Section 8 properties? are they nicer than your home? you seem to 'know' an awful lot; unfortuantely you have nothing but your bias to back it up with.
amy farland January 21, 2014 at 09:47 AM
24% of paid medical expenses are deducted from the rent calculations which is intended to help the elderly and disabled and those families who have a disabled member ane therefore unusually high medical expenses. You want to eliminate that? does it sound too generous to you? Section 8 housing is not public housing; neighbors may or may not be on Section 8. How is that you assume those arrested are on Section 8? 49% are elderly. How many little old ladies do you see arrested every day? Racist death threats against this President are so high in number in the last 5 years in comparison to previous presidents that the Secret Service won't even publish numbers. Perhaps this can help you understand about white privilege: http://www.politicususa.com/2014/01/20/king-ended-reign-terror-time-truth.html The MN Department of Health has determined that the structural pieces of racism remain so strong in Minnesota to this day that it results in poorer health among minorities. But to point that out or relate what you are saying to vestiges and outpouring of racism means i am playing the race card. yep, that's the problem we have alright..... If you did not assume that Section 8 tenants were poor blacks instead of maybe your sister, you wouldn't spout your hate.
amy farland January 21, 2014 at 09:57 AM
how is it by the way that you seem to be aware of the fact that wages have been compressed and lowered and rents and mortgages have increased to the point that the working class cannot afford housing yet you focus your ire on the 'powerful' poor and not the the 'poor innocent ruling class' that has actually caused your distress? and if you don't think that the police state has been instructed to keep the poor down and arrest minorities to keep them in line and ignore lawlessness amongst the ruling class you are surely deluded. The types of crimes perpretrated by the ruling class have been made 'legal' by legislation which is why the Justice Department could not go after the corrupt Wall Street Banks that ruined our economy. You have a strange viewpoint of power and crime.
Mike B. January 21, 2014 at 10:47 AM
There is a direct correlation between criminal behavior and Section 8 housing... a fact that is not in dispute. I would invite all liberals who decry the so-called inequality in our society to invite a poor person to live in their households... fat chance of that, of course. Liberals never back up their false compassion with action. It's conservative and conservative thought that has made everyone better off in the USA
Daniel January 21, 2014 at 05:21 PM
Once Again, I did not mention race but the race-baiting Left wants to make it an issue since they can not dispute facts. There are single family homes in my neighborhood that are Section 8s which are owned by the City of Saint Louis Park. On the market, these homes would rent for well over $1200/month. How many people would like to live in a nice home but are unable to afford the rent and instead choose to live in a smaller home in a worse neighborhood? Why are Section 8s treated as better than many working people in the general population. Please don't argue the elderly and disabled. Those are a small segment of the people in Section 8s. We all agree that we need to care for those who can't care for themselves.

I am guessing the three individuals involved in this assault were not on their way to a social hour at the Lake Minnetonka Garden Club.
MikeWLS January 22, 2014 at 07:38 AM
Was this at the Holiday Gas station?
Casey January 22, 2014 at 02:17 PM
Amy, how about you move them next door to you then? I love how the Liberal mind wants everyone to have a second chance and tries to protect AN OBVIOUS VIOLENT person, but then can't put their money where their BIG mouth is!
