Spartanburg County deputies said a man was arrested Monday morning after he was accused of beating his pregnant girlfriend Sunday night.

The 18-year-old girl told deputies she had purchased a pregnancy test earlier in the day on Sunday and it showed positive results. 

The woman said she told 31-year-old Santos Garcia the news when he returned home around 11 that evening. Garcia became irate upon hearing the news and broke her cell phone when she attempted to call her mother to pick her up.

Reports say Garcia pushed her onto the bed and hit her repeatedly in the stomach, stating that he was going to kill the baby. The attack also included blows to the victim’s back and right eye.

The victim was eventually able to flee to a neighbor’s house, where she told deputies she called her mother and then 911.

Garcia was arrested Monday morning and charged with domestic violence of a high and agravated nature.
