GRANDIN, N.D. – A 21-year-old man was arrested here Friday morning after he allegedly assaulted a woman who is 30 weeks pregnant, the Cass County Sheriff’s Office reported.

Deputies arrested Taylor Wayne Rohrich at his home at about 5:30 a.m. on suspicion of aggravated domestic violence. He was taken to the Cass County Jail in Fargo.

The woman, who lives with Rohrich, alleged that he hit her in the face with his hands and a blunt object that she believed to be a baseball bat, Capt. Rick Majerus said.
