Fuerza Pública officers detained a 20-year-old man Thursday afternoon while he was riding on a bus with his pregnant 12-year-old girlfriend. Police became aware of the case Wednesday when the man brought the girl to Hospital William Allen because she was having problems attributed to her pregnancy. But he fled the hospital when he realized police were coming, they said. They said he faces other charges of sexual abuse. The arrest took place in La Swisa de Turrialba.
