Police in Houston have charged a man after he allegedly attempted to flee his pregnant ex-girlfriend in an SUV — as she clung to the windshield wipers.
A spokesman for the Houston Police Department told TheBlaze that 33-year-old Anthony Adan Escovido arrived at a motel where his 31-year-old ex-girlfriend, who is 32-weeks-pregnant with Escovido's child, was staying and allegedly stole the keys to the SUV, which a friend had loaned to her.
When Escovido's ex-girlfriend saw another woman in the vehicle with him, she told him to "get out, but Escovido refused.
That's when the woman jumped on the hood and grabbed the windshield wipers, but the suspect fled with the victim still hanging on, according to police. The ex-girlfriend fell off a short distance away along a service road off Interstate 45 in southeast Houston.
The victim suffered scrapes to her hands and feet, but the baby was not harmed. She was taken to a nearby hospital to be treated.
Escovido was arrested about an hour later and now faces misdemeanor assault charges.
Police said they got several 911 calls about the incident, which a witness named Gabriel Medina captured on video as it unfolded.
