The incident allegedly happened at a home on Kaercher Street in Greenfield.

Police said Johnson first hit the woman’s daughter in the face and choked her over an argument about doing the dishes. That child is reportedly OK and did not go to the hospital for treatment.

When police interviewed the pregnant woman, they said she told them she is 10 weeks along in her pregnancy and Johnson insisted she get an abortion. He also allegedly threatened to take care of the unborn child himself.
