A New York man has been charged with seriously injuring the mother of his child, a Jersey City woman, on Christmas Eve when he slammed her head on the ground, authorities said.
Omar Rodriguez, 35, of Bronx, who police say also damaged the door lock and door jamb on the woman’s Jersey City apartment, was charged with aggravated assault and criminal mischief.
Police said Rodriguez shoved and struck the woman.
Rodriguez’s bail was set at $30,000 when he appeared in front of Judge Richard Nieto yesterday in Central Judicial Processing court. Rodriguez was ordered to have no contact with the victim after he was informed that the woman had filed a restraining order.
