The attack on Rosalinda Cunningham and Vincent Pace

SPOTSYLVANIA, VA — A violent attack on a pregnant woman and her boyfriend on Thanksgiving at the Spotsylvania Towne Center was captured on video

Rosalinda Cunningham, who is nine months pregnant, and her boyfriend, Vincent Pace, were shopping at around 9:30 P.M. when she began having contractions.

They went back to their car and were about to pull out of The Guitar Center parking lot to head to the hospital when they were surrounded by a group of people.

"They literally just stood in front of the car — started banging on the car — kicking the car, telling him to get out of the vehicle," Cunningham told WTVR. She said that they then demanded that she get out of the vehicle.

"My doors are locked; her doors are unlocked. They tried to drag her out," Pace told the TV station. He told reporters that he tried to protect his partner – and that’s when the group began to attack him.

"Every time I got up, they pushed me — knocked me back down," he said.

Cunningham said when she tried to come to her boyfriend's aid, a woman ran over and began hitting her.

Pace said he was terrified as he watched the woman hit Cunningham in the back: "My heart dropped — because I thought it was her stomach. My heart dropped. And I lost it.”

"When we got to the hospital that night it took us two and a half hours to find a heartbeat — which kind of messed me up, because this is my first child, too," said Pace.

But the doctors confirmed that the ultrasound showed no abnormalities, and that their baby was not in danger.

The couple said they reported the incident to the Spotsylvania Sheriff's Office. Police are actively investigating the incident, and have asked anyone with information to call Spotsylvania Crime Solvers at 1 (800) 928-5822 or 1 (540) 582-5822.
