CLEARWATER, Fla. (WFLA) — A Clearwater man was accused of grabbing a pregnant woman and threatening her and her husband with a knife outside their home.
According to an arrest affidavit from the Clearwater Police Department, Philip Felix, 58, got into an argument with the woman and her husband at 7 a.m. on Tuesday. The affidavit listed his employer as Morton Plant Hospital.
Felix was reportedly blocking the door and refusing to let them inside. Police said Felix grabbed the woman’s buttocks and tried to pull her inside the home, but her husband helped her break free.

Felix was booked into the Pinellas County Jail and charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and aggravated battery on a pregnant woman.
