Pregnant woman set on fire by boyfriend delivers baby prematurely

A pregnant woman has been attacked by her boyfriend and forced to deliver her baby seven weeks early after he doused her in flammable liquid and set her on fire, according to police. Andrea Grinage, 30, was found with critical burns over much of her body around 11.45am Friday in Capitol Heights, Maryland, when police and fire crews responded to reports of a fire.

Grinage was forced into labor by the horrific trauma and gave birth to a baby girl, named Journey Aleah, seven weeks early. Mother and baby are both recovering.

She was already the mother of two boys, ages 8 and 15, her father Arthur Grinage Sr said in an appeal for help on a GoFundMe campaign.

‘Everything was lost in the fire and she must begin a new with your help. She has a long road to recovery and unknown medical cost. PLEASE stop domestic violence!!’ the father wrote.

The suspect in the vile assault is believed to be the father of the newborn baby.

Arthur Grinage Sr said that the incident stemmed from the pregnancy and the boyfriend’s immature attitude towards fatherhood.

Andrea Grinage was able to tell investigators who had attacked her, and said that she suspected he was headed to Washington DC to attack other members of her family.

Detectives were able to get the suspect on the phone and talk him into turning himself in.

The suspect has not yet been publicly identified by law enforcement.
