A pregnant Rock Hill woman told police that her boyfriend attacked her Sunday after she asked him not to smoke marijuana in her apartment.

Police have charged Cameron Lavar Anderson, 24, with criminal domestic violence, according to Rock Hill Police documents. He was released from jail Monday on a $1,000 bond.

About 2:40 p.m., police were sent to a Hardin Street apartment, where they met with a woman, 19, in the parking lot, the report states. She said when she came home from church, she found her boyfriend in the bathroom smoking pot.

She said she asked him to stop smoking because she’s pregnant, the report states. According to the woman, the boyfriend became upset and started throwing things at her in the bedroom.

The woman said he grabbed her by her arms, pinned her on the bed and started punching and hitting her, the report states.

Police saw “minor bruises” on the inside of her arm, the report states. Officers found Anderson on Constitution Boulevard and arrested him.

The woman declined to comment when reached by The Herald on Tuesday.

Anderson has no prior criminal history, according to records with the State Law Enforcement Division.
