Man accused of assaulting pregnant girlfriend

A Cedarhurst man was charged with assault Tuesday after allegedly beating his girlfriend who is six months pregnant.

Police say 31-year-old William Sease got into an argument with the woman at their home and punched her repeatedly in the face Monday.

Cops say the woman later entered a car with Sease believing he would take her to the hospital. According to police, Sease threatened her again and she jumped out of the car, fearing for her safety.

Authorities say the woman suffered multiple fractures to the nose and scalp. Her unborn child is expected to be OK.
