MANCHESTER — Police arrested a 34-year-old city man Sunday and charged him with beating and slashing a pregnant woman.
Police arrested Angel Maldonado at Bronstein Park, three days after the assault and after an anonymous tip, they said.
The victim was asleep in her West Side apartment last Thursday when she woke to someone kicking and punching her, she told police.
She said the man hit her dozens of times in the head and face, kicked her, struck her with a lamp, threw a dresser on her and beat her with a drawer.
Police said she had cuts on her arms from being slashed with a knife.
Maldonado is charged with first- and second-degree felony assault, simple assault and criminal mischief. He was jailed overnight and was scheduled to appear Monday afternoon in Hillsborough County Superior Court.
Police said Maldonado’s alleged victim was known to him.
