AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

A 17-year-old Augusta woman said her boyfriend assaulted her and told her to drink bleach after she told him she may be pregnant, according to an incident report from the Aiken County Sheriff's Office.

The victim told deputies she went to her boyfriend's house around 11 p.m. Tuesday because he wanted to talk, according to the report. After she told him she may be pregnant, he became very upset.

The man, who is 20 years old, tried to choke her, hit her in the jaw and threw her against the bed and door, according to the report. He also took her phone so that she couldn't call anyone.

The victim also told deputies her boyfriend told her to drink bleach to kill the fetus.

Deputies said she had scratches on her neck, chest and shoulder, and a swollen jaw.
