FRANKLIN,Pa. — A northwestern Pennsylvania man has been jailed on charges he punched a pregnant woman in the stomach and threated to give her a "home abortion" during a domestic dispute.

Online court records don't list an attorney for 23-year-old Kelton McClarrin, of Oil City, who has been jailed since his arrest about 2 a.m. Sunday.

The (Oil City) Derrick reports Franklin police were called after McClarrin allegedly "backhanded" the woman — who is four-and-a-half months pregnant — and dragged her out of bed by her ankle before punching her stomach with a closed fist.

Police say McClarrin also brandished a knife as he threatened the woman with the abortion.

Police have charged McClarrin with aggravated assault on an unborn child, terroristic threats and other crimes. He faces a preliminary hearing Jan. 8.
