(Scroll down for video) A family was happy to reunite with their daughter and her baby, who was fathered by the kidnapper.
The woman of California, who is now 25 year old, was abducted 10 years ago. She has been found alive and well.
The accused kidnapper was identified as 41-year-old Isidro Garcia. He was arrested on charges of kidnapping, rape and imprisonment, police said.
At the time of the abduction, the victim, who was 15 years old, lived in a complex in Santa Ana, with her family.
She began a relationship with Garcia, who lived nearby.
Garcia had reportedly been sexually abusing her for a couple of months before he kidnapped her.
One day, Garcia allegedly drugged the teen and took her hostage. He gave her false identity papers. In order to keep full control over the teen, Garcia took her along to his job as a night cleaner.
When the victim turned 18 years old, Garcia forced her to marry him. Two years ago, the woman gave birth to Garcia’s baby. The couple moved to many different locations to avoid being caught.
Over the years, the woman tried to escape, but was caught by Garcia, and he beat her for trying to get away. The woman’s latest attempt to escape was successful.
The woman notified police and Garcia was arrested.
A neighbor of the woman’s mother claims that the teenager ran away with Garcia voluntarily after her family did not approve of her relationship with the much older man.
Garcia’s lawyer claims that his wife filed the kidnapping charges only after the couple decided to separate.
