Buckinghamshire, UK (The Sun) — A MAN was charged today over a race attack on a pregnant woman who later lost her unborn twin babies.
David Gallacher, 37, is accused of assaulting the mum-to-be by kicking her in the stomach as she walked close to a mosque.
He also allegedly attacked a man who tried to intervene during the incident near a Co-op store in Milton Keynes, Bucks., last August.
The unnamed Somalian woman, who is a mum-of-four, was forced to flee her home in fear as a result of the assault. She had not known she was expecting twins until medics told her she had lost them following the assault.
Her 40-year-old husband has had to give up his job as a taxi driver to stay home and reassure his traumatised wife.
Gallacher was today charged with assault causing actual bodily harm, assault by beating and two counts of racially/religiously aggravated assault.
He has also been charged with three counts of assaulting a constable as they arrested a man in a separate incident on September 14 last year.
Gallacher, of no fixed abode, has been bailed to appear at Milton Keynes Magistrates’ Court on 14 March.
