The Middlesex County District Attorney's Office said Steven Stalzer, 31, of Stow, was charged with domestic assault and battery and assault and battery on a pregnant person. Investigators allege the attack happened around 3 a.m. Monday morning in their home.

Stalzer was arraigned in Concord District Court and released on personal recognizance. He was ordered not to abuse the victim and to surrender any weapons.

Acton police said that Stalzer was placed on leave following his arrest Saturday. His license to carry has been suspended and his badge and service weapon were taken.
