Pregnant Woman Floored By What Man Did To Her

A heavily pregnant woman in early labor decided to take a little walk outside to help the contractions progress. As she strolled down the Orlando streets, a guy attacked her and mugged her.

Julienne Antoine was eagerly anticipating the birth of her daughter. The mother-to-be was monitoring her contractions, which were 20 minutes apart. She thought a little fresh air and sunshine might help her feel better, and knew walking might encourage her water to break. She went outside about 10:30 in the morning to take a short walk down the block.

That's when she spotted a young man standing on the sidewalk.

“I just looked at him and smiled, and then he had something in his hand,” Antoine told WKMG-TV in Orlando. “He was smoking, and he kind of threw it out and he just lunged at me.”

Antoine reported that the thief snatched her gold necklace off her neck. The $1,500 necklace had a lot of sentimental value as it had been a birthday present she was given 10 years ago.

“Who robs a pregnant woman?” the new mom asked, still stunned by the events. “When he snatched the chain, he put it in his pocket and proceeded to walk past me like nothing happened. I was like, ‘What did you do that for?’ and I’m thinking in my mind, ‘What just happened? Did this really happen?’”

Antoine was rushed to the hospital after the attack. She gave police details, and they’ve released a sketch of the mugger.

The day turned out to have a happy ending. Antoine and her baby was unharmed, and that afternoon she gave birth to her daughter Janelle.
