Marshfield woman, unborn baby doing fine after attack


We have an update on a pregnant woman police say was attacked in Marshfield. Police say the woman and her unborn baby are doing fine.

Marshfield police say a 23-year-old man doused the 28-year-old woman in gasoline and threatened to set her on fire. This happened on Saturday.

Investigators say the woman was also punched in the stomach multiple times.

Police are not releasing the suspect's name at this time because charges haven't been requested yet. Investigators expect that to happen by early next week.

The man is in the Marathon County Jail.
