Officers say the victim told them that her boyfriend, Abdikadir Abdi, 21, hit her in the right eye while she was holding her five-month old child.  She then said Abdi hit her in the stomach and bit her hand.

The victim was taken to University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics.

Abdi is charged with domestic abuse/assault and child endangerment.
