City: Pittsburgh, CA
When: 6/21/2012

A pregnant woman was hospitalized for a shocking reason in late June, after a tandem of assailants apparently took turns dealing blows to her face on a Bay Area Rapid Transit train between stations near San Francisco. According to police reports, the two attackers approached the woman around 3:30 one afternoon and tried to steal her laptop, a failed attempt that was met with a surprising amount of resistance from the pregnant woman. The robbers settled on taking the woman's cell phone, and were soon arrested.
