TAYLORSVILLE — Charges were filed Tuesday against a West Valley City man police say assaulted a woman who is seven months pregnant.

Robert William Grall, 26, was charged in 3rd District Court with aggravated assault resulting in serious bodily injury, a second-degree felony, and criminal mischief with intentional damage to property, a class B misdemeanor.

Charging documents say Grall called the woman on Saturday and asked her to give him a ride. When she arrived at the Taylorsville home, Grall was with several other men who also wanted a ride. She refused because she didn't have room in her car.

An argument ensued, and Grall punched the woman in the mouth, knocking her unconscious, and she fell to the ground, charging documents state.

Grall also kicked the driver's door of her car, according to charging documents.

Grall was booked into the Salt Lake County Jail the same day. His bail was set at $10,000.
