A man was arrested for assaulting his pregnant girlfriend late last month, officials said.

Delwanna Parker told police that Alexis Ortega punched her in the face and stomach inside her home at 1029 Butler St., Easton, at about 3:50 a.m. on Oct. 27, officials said.

Parker, who was found with a large bump over her right eye, told police that Ortega knew she was two-and-a-half months pregnant when he kicked her, officials said.


Court papers list two addresses for Ortega: 830 Wolf Ave., Easton, and 34 Lewis St., Phillipsburg, N.J.

Ortega, 19, was arraigned Sunday on assault, harassment and reckless endangerment charges and committed to the Northampton County Prison on $5,000 bail, according to court documents.

A preliminary hearing is set for 9 a.m. Nov. 19.
