The man was identified as Joseph Gravitz, who is now facing charges of domestic battery and aggravated domestic battery for punching a woman who is pregnant. A 34-year-old woman came forward and told police that Gravitz had been drunk in her vehicle and she told him to get out. He got angry and choked her, then punching her in the face several times.
Then, Gravitz punched a 31-year-old pregnant woman in the back of the head multiple times. A witness saw Gravitz striking the women.
When police found Gravitz, who was in a ditch, they placed him under arrest for domestic battery charges.
