SAN ANGELO, TX – A San Angelo man was arrested Tuesday after he was indicted for allegedly beating up a pregnant woman.

According to court documents, on Mar. 4, District Attorney Allison Palmer presented evidence to a Tom Green County grand jury against Chad Allen Martin, 28, of San Angelo that accused him of assaulting a  pregnant woman.

Martin is accused of not only pushing the pregnant woman but also striking the woman with his hand.
