PREGNANT SIOUX CITY WOMAN’S THROAT CUT

SIOUX CITY—A pregnant Sioux City woman is recovering after being stabbed six times and having her throat cut. The 20-year-old woman was attacked Monday morning at her home. Police say the woman’s estranged boyfriend, 20-year-old Thomas Rausch Jr., is charged with attempted murder and nonconsensual termination of a pregnancy. Court records show Rausch allegedly entered the home to get some belongings but walked up behind the woman and cut her throat. Authorities say he then stabbed her six times. The woman’s condition and the condition of her unborn child have not been released. Police say Rausch is the child’s father. Rausch is being held in the Woodbury County jail on $500,000 bond. A telephone message left Wednesday for his attorney was not immediately returned.
