BATON ROUGE - Two women are accused of attacking a pregnant family member, and are allegedly tied to a similar crime that also took place in 2017.

According to arrest records, on Oct. 19, 2017, Baton Rouge Police officers responded to a home on Erie Street. Officers contacted a female victim, who was pregnant, according to arrest records.

The pregnant victim told police that her sister, Roshawn Williams, and her cousin, Dominique Johnson, had forced their way into her home.

She said after forcing their way into her home without her permission, both Williams and Johnson repeatedly punched her in the stomach multiple times, according to arrest records.

Officers observed "a large bruised area" on the victim's stomach at the time.

After further investigation, a prior reported incident involving the two suspects was discovered. According to arrest records, on Sept. 29, 2017, officers were called to a home by a victim that said the same two suspects had an unknown female knock on her door.

When the victim opened the door, she was rushed and attacked by Williams and Johnson. The two repeatedly punched her in the face before fleeing on foot, the victim said.

Johnson was arrested and booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on one count of attempted first-degree feticide, one count of home invasion and one count of stalking. Williams is also wanted on the same charges but does not appear to have been booked into EBRPP.
