Pregnant woman punched, stomped on by stranger at cafe

A heavily pregnant woman has allegedly been punched in the head and stomped on in an horrific random attack at a cafe in Sydney.

The 31-year-old, who is 38-weeks pregnant, was with friends at a cafe on Church Street in Parramatta when a man randomly approached her table.

Police say he allegedly leaned over the table and punched the woman in the head multiple times before she fell to the ground where it’s alleged the man then stomped on her head.


Other patrons ran to her aid and managed to restrain the man until police arrived.

The 43-year-old was arrested at the scene before being taken to the local police station where he was charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm and affray.

He was refused bail to appear in Parramatta Local Court today.

The woman was treated at the scene before being taken to hospital for observation.

Police confirmed the man is not known to the woman.
