A Hopkinsville man is charged with burglary after allegedly breaking into a West 7th Street home and assaulting a pregnant woman.
Officers were called to the home just before 10 pm Sunday night and heard a woman screaming for help. When police got inside, they found 25-year old George Watkins of Hopkinsville allegedly standing over the woman who is eight months pregnant and yelling in her face.
The victim said Watkins had forced his way inside and also hurt her neck in the alleged assault, though she said she would seek medical treatment on her own. Watkins was lodged in the Christian County Jail.
