Brookville Woman Arrested for Allegedly Punching Pregnant Woman in Stomach, Threatening to Kill Her Unborn Baby

BROOKVILLE, Pa. (EYT) –Police say a Brookville woman was arrested on March 19 for allegedly attacking a pregnant woman.

According to Brookville Borough Police, Elizabeth L. Bailey, 25, of Brookville, is accused of assaulting another female, a staff member for a human services organization around 12:30 a.m., who is approximately 15 weeks pregnant.

According to an Affidavit of Probable Cause, Bailey called police and met them on the porch of the residence, claiming that a staff member had injured her right hand and bit her on the right hip.

After further investigation, it was determined that there wasn’t an injury on Bailey’s right hand, and the injury on her hip came from the victim trying to escape Bailey’s attack, who had then locked herself in an upstairs room to escape Bailey.

During an interview, it was discovered that upon the staff member arriving at the residence, Bailey was upset over her pageant crown being bent and was acting out.

She eventually went into her bedroom, and as per company policy, the victim went to check on her after 15 minutes.

Bailey allegedly yelled at the victim and accused her of spying on her, then got up and went downstairs, pulled the plug on the TV, and shut out the lights.

Soon after this event, Bailey allegedly began threatening to kill the victim, saying, “I’m going to f-ing  kill you. I’m going to kill your baby. I hope your baby dies,”  according to the affidavit.

She also allegedly made comments of contacting her mother in Philadelphia, and getting a gun and shooting everyone.

Then she allegedly attacked the victim, punching her in the face/head and left side of the stomach.

The victim was checked by EMS at the scene, but denied being transported to a hospital, but instead elected to drive herself.

She was treated at DuBois Regional Medical Center for her injuries.

Bailey was arrested and arraigned before District Judge Bazylak on the following charges:

– Aggravated Assault of an Unborn Child
– Aggravated Assault, Simple Assault
– Terroristic Threats
– Disorderly Conduct
– Harassment

Her bail was set at $30,000.00 straight, and she was committed to the Jefferson County Prison pending further court action, according to police.

Bailey is scheduled to face a preliminary hearing on April 1.
