Pregnant woman attacked in Baltimore

An attack on a pregnant nurse in North Baltimore has spurred Baltimore police to add patrol officers to the Guilford neighborhood, the neighborhood association reported.

According to a police report and the association, a nurse who was several months pregnant had been walking in the 3700 block of Greenmount Ave. on her way to work at Union Memorial Hospital on Saturday when she turned into the 400 block of Bretton Place at about 6:55 p.m. and was attacked.

Police said a 5-foot-10, 150-pound, black teenager who appeared to be 16 or 17 in a longsleeve camoflauge shirt punched the woman at least three or four times. The attacker stole the woman's keys, iPhone 4 and bank card before fleeing, the police report said. A second teen was standing lookout, the woman told police. She could not describe him in detail.

Police said the woman suffered a welt over her left eye and listed her in "good" condition. She was not hospitalized, the report said, and declined treatement. Her husband later took her to a hospital for a checkup. The bank card was found near the attack, the police report said.
