Oldsmar man accused of hitting pregnant Palm Harbor woman

OLDSMAR — An 18-year-old Oldsmar man was back in the Pinellas County Jail on Wednesday after authorities say he struck a pregnant Palm Harbor woman.

It was the second time in as many weeks that Matthew James Curr was arrested on charges related to aggravated battery of a pregnant female.

In the latest incident, which occurred at 2 p.m. Sunday, James punched Nadezhda Poplavski in the stomach, according to a Pinellas County Sheriff's Office report. Poplavski, 20, is more than 14 weeks pregnant.

"I hope that baby dies," James told her.

Poplavski complained of severe pain and was taken to Mease Countryside Hospital by ambulance, the report said. Her condition was not known. Curr remained in custody without bail.

A bump in the price of Amazon shares in July of 2017 was enough to move  Bezos above Bill Gates, the Microsoft co-founder, who has topped Forbes' billionaires list 18 out of the last 23 years.
