BARROW - An Alaska State Trooper arrested a man accused of punching a pregnant woman in the stomach this week.
Troopers say the alleged attack occurred in the village of Selawik - 90 miles east of Kotzebue. The woman, seven months pregnant, was transported to a Kotzebue hospital.
James Foxglove was charged with assault and resisting arrest. The 48-year-old was lodged at the Kotzebue Regional Jail. Another man at the scene, 51-year-old Carl Foxglove, was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest after reportedly challenging the Trooper to a fight.
Troopers say both Foxgloves were highly intoxicated.
