Port Richey man accused of attacking pregnant girlfriend

PORT RICHEY — A man attacked his pregnant girlfriend Saturday, throwing a child's car seat at her head while she held another baby in her arms, Pasco deputies said.

Christopher Wright, 23, attacked his live-in girlfriend during an argument about 6 p.m., punching her in the side of the head as she held their 8-month-old child, an arrest report states. She is two months pregnant with their next child.

As she left the home, Wright followed her, hitting her with the seat, the Pasco County Sheriff's Office report said. When witnesses called 911, Wright ran, changed his clothes and hid in an attic crawl space above his garage on Schrader Boulevard, deputies said.

Wright was charged with aggravated battery on a pregnant woman, child abuse and violation of probation on a previous forgery arrest. He remains in the Land O'Lakes jail without bail.
