By Nick Davis, May 19, 2017

An Ottumwa man has been arrested after police accused him of impregnating a teenage girl.

Police arrested 25 year old Benevenuto Lopez-Alonzo on Wednesday.

Court documents made available online indicate police opened an investigation into Alonzo in late April after learning of the 14 year old’s pregnancy.

The sexual relationship apparently took place in Alonzo’s home.

DNA analysis confirmed that Alonzo was the father of the girls unborn baby.

He faces one count of third-degree sexual abuse, a class C felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison. He also faces a misdemeanor charge of sexual exploitation.

Alonzo has pleaded not guilty and is being held on $12,000 bond.
