A man was jailed after assaulting a pregnant woman for not thanking him.

33-year-old Darryl Gillyard assaulted the woman who was 10 weeks pregnant.

Gillyard attacked 22-year-old Lakeeya Walker, who works for the New York Housing Authority, because she did not thank him for holding the door open for her.

Gillyard threw a cup of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee at Walker’s face before hitting her and knocking her down.

“When I entered the building, I did not say anything to him. He was mad that I did not say thank you. He called me an ungrateful b***h,” Walker said.

Gillyard was arrested, charged and convicted of assault, and he was sentenced to five years in prison.
