ELYRIA — An Elyria man is accused of beating his eight-months-pregnant girlfriend in her home in the 300 block of Fourth Street about 4 a.m. Tuesday.

Bianca Foy said she argued with the expectant father, Isaias Sanchez, about text messages on his phone, police Officer Paul Lesner wrote in his report. Foy, who police said had red marks on her arms and face and an injured right forearm, said Sanchez shoved her into a couch, a door and walls when she attempted to leave.

Foy said Sanchez also grabbed her by the arms and bit her on the right forearm. Foy said she called police when Sanchez left. Foy, 21, said she was experiencing stomach pain and planned to be examined at University Hospitals Elyria Medical Center.

Sanchez, of the 200 block of Bath Street, was arrested and charged with domestic violence. The 19-year-old’s criminal record includes a conviction for persistent disorderly conduct.

Sanchez was held without bond at the Lorain County Jail Tuesday night. He is due in Elyria Municipal Court today.
