Columbus Dispatch via YellowBrix

October 08, 2010

COLUMBUS, OH – A Near East Side man pointed a gun at a pregnant woman and forced her to go to a clinic yesterday morning after she refused to go through with a scheduled abortion there, Columbus police say.

Dominic L. Holt-Reid, 27, of 579 Kelton Ave., was arrested and charged with kidnapping and carrying a concealed weapon.

Dominic L. Holt-Reid, 27, is charged with kidnapping.

Police found him about 9:45 a.m. in a parking lot behind Founder’s Women’s Health Center, 1243 E. Broad St., said Sgt. Rich Weiner, a Columbus police spokesman.

Holt-Reid and Yolanda M. Burgess, the woman he forced to the clinic, have a child together, Weiner said. But they do not appear to share a home address, he said. State birth records show that child is a 4-year-old boy.

Burgess was in a vehicle with Holt-Reid yesterday morning after dropping their child off at school, according to a police statement. Holt-Reid became angry after Burgess refused to go through with an abortion that had been scheduled for 9 a.m. at the clinic.

Holt-Reid pulled a handgun from the glove compartment, pointed it at her and forced her to drive to the health clinic, according to police. The woman passed a note to a clinic employee, who called police.

Burgess wasn’t harmed.

Birth records show that Holt-Reid also has a 3-year-old daughter with another woman. He is scheduled to appear in Franklin County Municipal Court this morning and was in the Franklin County jail last night.

Burgess and her family couldn’t be reached for comment yesterday.

    Ya know, if he doesn't want any more children, (which is really a great decision BTW), then he can simply keep it in his damn pants! I have an idea to solve this, castrate him! Works for me!
