GRAND HAVEN, Mich. — Grand Haven police investigated two assaults Tuesday, one involving a pregnant woman.

In the first incident, officers responded about 10:30 p.m. to a fight at the Baymont Inn, a news release said Wednesday.

It happened between a man and woman from Muskegon Heights and three women from Muskegon.

The Muskegon Heights woman, who is nine months pregnant, was physically attacked and with pepper spray.

One of the attackers had the end of a finger bit off by the victim during the assault.

In the second assault soon after, a 27-year-old Grand Haven man allegedly broke into his ex-girlfriend's house, threatened to kill her, chased her outside, pushed her to the ground and slammed her face into concrete.

It happened about 11:15 p.m. at Nathans Way, Grand Haven police said Wednesday.

He broke in using a sledgehammer to break a glass sliding door.

Neighbors confronted the man outside, and he returned to his car and drove into his ex-girlfriend's car and two other nearby cars before fleeing on foot.

Police apprehended him in the Pizza Hut parking lot in Ferrysburg.

He’s being lodged at the Ottawa County Jail on felony charges with arraignment pending in district court.

The woman’s face was injured and she was treated at and released from North Ottawa Community Hospital.
