Police say a Bartlesville woman had a miscarriage after she was punched in the stomach by her ex-boyfriend.

On June 2nd, an affidavit says officers responded to a domestic assault and battery call just after 10 a.m. in the 400 block of West 14th Street in Bartlesville. It says the assault happened in the parking lot of the FYC store.

When officers arrived on scene they spoke to Tameka Baird, who was five-months pregnant. She told officers she was meeting her ex-boyfriend, Michael Bosworth, to pick up her property; the two had just broken up.

She told officers that when Bosworth arrived he started arguing, grabbed her by the hair and tried to pull her into a car. She then said Bosworth was hitting her when a man approached them in the parking lot and said they were being recorded on the security camera of the store.

According to the affidavit, Baird said she was eventually able to escape Bosworth and ran inside FYC. She said he followed her inside and punched her in the left side of her stomach then drove away.

While officers interviewed Baird, another officer stopped Bosworth and took him into custody.

Officers took photographs of Baird's injuries before she told them she was feeling sick. EMS was called and took her to a nearby hospital. On June 5th, Baird miscarried. Police say they fetus is being examined and the cause is under investigation.

Bosworth is in custody for felony domestic assault and battery against a pregnant woman resulting in a miscarriage of an unborn child.
