Charges were filed Monday against a 36 year old Gary man accused of injuring a pregnant woman in front of her four-year old child. The Lake County Sheriff's Office reports a detective with the department's Children and Family Division investigated an incident recently where the victim says the suspect, Samuel Odisho pushed her down multiple times, knowing she was three-months pregnant, and also allegedly grabbed her while he was going up the stairs, causing her to slide on a rug, leaving burns to her legs, back and elbows, which were visible to officers. Authorities say Odisho also took the victim's and her child's belongings, and fled the area. Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to contact the Lake County Sheriff's Office.
