QUINCY, Mass. (AP) — Two men have been charged with attacking a pregnant woman in Quincy.

The Patriot Ledger reports 19-year-old Tyrese Johnson-Nurse and 18-year-old David Russell were arraigned on aggravated assault and battery charges Thursday.

The Quincy teens have been in custody since the Tuesday evening attack outside a downtown post office.

Prosecutors say the woman had been walking with her boyfriend when she suddenly vomited. The two men laughed and spat at her and a scuffle ensued.

A video from an eyewitness played in court shows the two men punched the woman in the head and kicked her in the stomach. The woman says she screamed she was pregnant but Russell responded: “I hope he dies.”

It couldn’t be determined if the men had lawyers. They’re due back in court May 29.
