(Scroll down for video) A man was arrested on charges of rape and kidnapping after allegedly kidnapping his girlfriend's daughter before getting her pregnant, police in California said.
Orange County Police said that 41-year-old Isidro Medrano Garcia, kidnapped the 15-year-old girl and lived with her for 10 years.
Garcia kidnapped the teenage daughter of his girlfriend after she was brought from Mexico to live with her mother in Santa Ana.
Garcia showered the victim with gifts and took her side when she had a disagreement with her mother. At some point, Garcia kidnapped the victim, who is now 25, and he gave her a false identity.
The victim's mother reported her missing and suspected Garcia of molesting her daughter. Garcia prevented the girl from fleeing and falsified her age to force her to marry him.
When she tried to escape, Garcia beat her. Five years ago, Garcia got the victim pregnant. Last year, the victim went to a police station in Bell Gardens to report an incident of domestic violence.
During the investigation, police realized that she was connected to a missing persons complaint filed by her mother.
Garcia pleaded not guilty to the charges, and he is being held on $1 million bail.
