Fulton County deputies have arrested a man accused of raping and impregnating his daughter after a chase over the weekend.
The Fulton County Sheriffs’ Office says their investigation started on the weekend when the Falls River Police Department reached out in their search for Roque Garcia-Ortiz.
According to officials, Garcia-Ortiz raped his 14-year-old daughter and impregnated her.
Officials were afraid that the suspect was trying to flee to Puerto Rico, where he has family ties, so the department’s Scorpion Unit got on the move.
After a search, Garcia-Ortiz was found at a hotel in East Point and brought into custody without incident.
Garcia-Ortiz is charged with three counts of rape, aggravated rape of a child, and one count of rape of a child with force.
He remains in custody at the Fulton County Jail while awaiting extradition back to Massachusetts.
