Pasco man accused of kicking pregnant girlfriend

Man jailed for kicking pregnant girlfriend

SPRING HILL — A 21-year-old man is accused of beating his girlfriend, who is five months pregnant, and kicking her in the stomach.

Ryan A. Rooker fled the scene after the Tuesday afternoon attack at his house at 17351 Citrus Lane, but called the victim as deputies were there with her, a Pasco County Sheriff's Office report states. The victim, who had a black eye and a lump on her head, put Rooker on speaker phone.

"I didn't kick you in the stomach," Rooker said, according to the report.

"I kicked you in your side."

Rooker was arrested and charged with aggravated battery on a pregnant woman. Rooker is on felony probation for burglary, according to the Florida Department of Corrections.

He was being held without bail Wednesday at the Pasco County jail.
