(Scroll down for video) Police are looking to arrest a man on a charge of assault after allegedly punching his wife in the face because she was breastfeeding her child in front of her doctor, according to police in New Mexico.
Taos police said that 22-year-old Rafael Orozco, became enraged after seeing his wife, Iesha Hartt, breastfeeding their child in front of her doctor.
Orozco began arguing with his wife, and he punched her in the face. He then grabbed her by the throat and tried to strangle her.
He also hit his own child.
Security personnel at the doctors office intervened and separated the two. Hartt told police that her husband is a very jealous man.
A security officer told police that Orozco hit him in the ribs.
Orozco threatened that he had a gun, and he was allowed to get away before police arrived at the scene. The hospital was placed under lockdown until police confirmed that Orozco was no longer a threat.
