CROWN POINT | A Gary man is wanted in the alleged battering of his three-months-pregnant girlfriend, county police said Tuesday.

Samuel Odisho, 36, is reported to also have taken items belonging to the woman and her 4-year-old child when he left the area.

Prosecutors charged Odisho Monday in the incident, police said. He is charged with battery resulting in bodily injury to a pregnant woman and theft, both felonies, and battery resulting in bodily injury, a misdemeanor.

The incident was investigated by the Lake County Sheriff's Police Children and Family Division.

Odisho allegedly pushed the woman down repeatedly, then grabbed the woman going up the stairs, causing her to slide and suffer rug burns to the legs, back and elbows.

The incidents were witnessed by the woman's 4-year-old, police said.
