Man accused in assault on pregnant ex-girlfriend

A Myrtle Beach man was arrested early Saturday morning on allegations that he stepped on his pregnant ex-girlfriend’s stomach and struck her mother.

Tyre Deshon Carter, 19, was charged with assault and battery.

According to a Myrtle Beach police incident report, Carter came to his ex-girlfriend’s apartment to talk about the pregnancy, as he is the father of the child. The woman didn’t want to talk to him and he grabbed her arm and pulled her outside, according to the police report. In the struggle, the woman fell to the ground.

The mother came outside and told Carter to leave her daughter alone. He told her to leave or he was going to step on the young woman’s stomach, the report stated.

He reportedly did put his foot on her stomach and apply pressure. The mother came over to help her daughter and was hit twice in the forehead and nose, according to the report.

The mother received15 stitches at Grand Strand Regional Medical Center. Warrants were issued for Carter’s arrest after the two spoke to police.
