OKLAHOMA CITY - A pregnant woman is recovering after she says she was attacked by her landlord.

"I don't want to be around him by myself because there's no telling what he'll try to do to me next," said Valerie Hudson.

Hudson is dealing with a mix of emotions over what happened to her just two days ago. She says she's shocked but most of all scared.

"He's got guns and I just don't know if he's going to come back over here and try to shoot me," said Hudson.

She's on edge after she says her landlord, Gary Smith, did the unthinkable.

"He just goes and he just hits me and we just started wrestling. I was like, 'Gary, what are you doing?' I was trying to push him off of me," said Hudson.

To make matters worse, Hudson is five months pregnant.

"I remember he punched me in my stomach and I was like, 'What is wrong with you? I'm pregnant.' He cussed and he was like, 'I don't care,'" said Hudson.

Hudson says she has known Smith for about two years. She says she has taken him to doctor's appointments and he has even visited with her family.

However, Hudson says he was a different person on Monday and simply snapped.

"He drew back a fist and hit her in the stomach. She has where you can see the knuckles and the fist marks on her belly," said Amanda Colette.

During a scuffle, they both took a hard fall near the door.

"The whole place right by the door was tore up. Glass was everywhere. Blood was everywhere," said Colette.

"When I was getting up, he punched me, and that part I do remember. Now, I've got a bruise on my side," Hudson said.

She also has a bruised knee, a knot on her forehead and another bruise under her chin.

She has no idea what's next for her. She was told by police the man accused of attacking her is planning another blow: eviction.

"Now I have nowhere to go. I'm pregnant. I've got my two daughters and my son that live here as well, and my daughter is pregnant too. She's almost due like any day now. So I'm just like, I don't know what we're going to do," said Hudson.

Gary Smith was arrested that night on assault and battery charges, but he is now out of jail.
