The man then threatened the woman with a home abortion while he brandished a knife.

McClarrin was arrested and jailed early Sunday morning after the incident. According to The Sentinel, McClarrin is due for his preliminary hearing on January 8. Until then, he remains in custody. The Sentinel reports:

The (Oil City) Derrick reports Franklin police were called after McClarrin allegedly “backhanded” the woman — who is four-and-a-half months pregnant — and dragged her out of bed by her ankle before punching her stomach with a closed fist.

Police say McClarrin also brandished a knife as he threatened the woman with the abortion.

Last year a Florida man caused his pregnant girlfriend to miscarry their child after giving her an abortifacient drug that he told her was an antibiotic.
