  • A Pennsylvania man attacked and tried to kill his girlfriend after demanding she get an abortion. From the Express-Times:

    Jashua Kinch-Rodriguez, 24, approached Jessenia Rosario about 9 p.m. Friday as she pulled into her apartment in the 100 block of South 12th Street, police said.

    Kinch-Rodriguez started arguing with her as she sat in her car’s seat, demanding she abort the baby and calling her a “whore,” according to court records. He then punched Rosario in the stomach and genitals with an open fist while screaming at her and threatening to kill her, police said. He also allegedly closed the car door on her legs.

    After Kinch-Rodriguez walked away, Rosario got out of the car and started going up the stairs to her second-floor apartment, where four other people were already inside, police said. Kinch-Rodriguez then produced a gun and started firing several shots into the apartment, nearly striking Rosario, according to court documents.
