A woman, nine months pregnant, was attacked in a Virginia mall parking lot on Thanksgiving and it was caught on camera.
Rosalinda Cunningham and her boyfriend Vincent Pace told WTVR they were both jumped by a group of teenagers around 9:30 p.m. at Spotsylvania Towne Center.
Cunningham was having contractions and was on her way to the hospital at the time of the incident. However, she and her boyfriend failed to pull off when their vehicle was stopped by a group of unidentified teens.
“They literally just stood in front of the car — started banging on the car — kicking the car telling him to get out of the vehicle.”
“And they tell me to get out of the vehicle — my doors are locked her doors are unlocked. They tried to drag her out.”
Pace exited the car in order to defend his girlfriend against the attack. Pace said:
“Every time I got up they pushed me — knocked me back down.”
At the same time, a woman was hitting Cunningham and he feared that she was being kicked in her stomach.
“My heart dropped — because I thought it was her stomach. My heart dropped. And I lost it.
My mind was going a million different ways.
When we got to the hospital that night it took us two and a half hours to find a heartbeat — which kind of messed me up because this is my first child, too.”
A video caught by a bystander captured the attack, which was reported to officers who responded to the scene of the assault.
