A Cordova man is accused of attacking his pregnant girlfriend last year.
Lyntavius Onqua Mack, 22, of 212 Kim Street is charged with kidnapping and domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature.
Mack’s arrest warrants accuse him of punching his pregnant girlfriend, “multiple times in her face and about her body with a closed fist, leaving physical injuries to include a busted lip, multiple knots on her head and a contusion on her stomach where she was also struck by subject Mack” at the apartment that they shared on Fletcher Street.
Mack’s girlfriend told officers that she was four months pregnant with Mack’s child and that he was aware that she was pregnant with his child, the warrant says.
The alleged assault took place on Oct. 14, 2018 in front of three of the girlfriend’s children, all under the age of 8.
According to an incident report, the girlfriend was able to write a note in green Crayon saying “When I walk out get help.” She handed it to her oldest daughter.
Mack is accused of forcing his girlfriend to walk to the Walmart Neighborhood Market on Stonewall Jackson Boulevard after the incident, leaving the three children behind.
While they were in the store, the girlfriend looked up and noticed Mack was no longer there, so she left to walk back to their apartment, the report said.
Meanwhile, the children walked to a neighbor’s apartment. The neighbor said the oldest child, an 8-year-old, handed her a note saying, “When I walk out get help.”
She told police she didn’t know what the note meant or where to find their mother. She called 911 and Orangeburg Department of Public Safety officers arrived two minutes later.
After a short while, an officer noticed Mack’s girlfriend emerging from a wood line.
The officer noted in a report that she was “very upset when she walked up.”
She told officers that she was scared that Mack may be watching her as she spoke with them.
The officer took the girlfriend to the Regional Medical Center for injuries sustained in the assault.
She said she was scared that Mack would assault her again, the report said.
A municipal judge set Mack’s bond on Tuesday at $25,000 with a 10 percent cash option.
He is on probation after pleading guilty in July 2018 to unlawful carrying of a pistol.
If convicted, Mack faces up to 30 years in prison.
