SALISBURY, NC (WBTV) - Investigators say a Newport, NC, man has been arrested in Salisbury after beating and kidnapping his pregnant ex-girlfriend.
Aaron Dean Brock, 18, was arrested Thursday in Rowan County on warrants from Carteret County.
Brock was booked into the jail just after 3:00 pm and charged with communicating threats, second degree kidnapping, assault on an unborn child and two charges of assault on a female.
Bond is set at $10,000.
Deputies say Brock fled Carteret County after the incident. The name of the girlfriend was withheld because she is a juvenile, according to Carteret County Sheriff's Office.
Brock is accused of punching and kicking the girl in the stomach while also holding her against her will and displaying a knife, according to the report at the Carteret County Sheriff's Office.
The incident allegedly occurred on Clements Drive in the Riverwoods subdivision in the town of Newport.
