A Roseburg man was arrested Saturday afternoon on a charge of fourth-degree felony assault against a woman he knew to be pregnant.

Roseburg Police responded to a call at 2525 Northeast Stephens St., where Dalton Geisler, 22, was allegedly physically abusing a woman at the residence.

According to a police report, Geisler had grabbed the woman, also 22, by her upper arms and threw her against a wall multiple times. The victim reportedly had visible bruising on her left arm and right hip, and also had a body piercing partially ripped out. 

The victim told police she is 25 weeks pregnant, which Geisler admitted he knew.

Geisler was lodged at the Douglas County Jail on $50,000 bail.

At some point in time, men stopped teaching their sons how to be men. The number 2 cause of death for pregnant women is murder by boyfriend/spouse. https://www.thespec.com/news/world/2017/09/15/homicide-now-second-leading-cause-of-death-for-pregnant-women-in-the-us.html
