Mom’s ex held daughter captive for 10 years, officials say

SANTA ANA, Calif. – Prosecutors in Orange County have charged a man with abducting his former girlfriend’s 15-year-old daughter a decade ago and repeatedly sexually assaulting her.

Isidro Medrano Garcia was charged Thursday with five felony counts, including rape and kidnapping to commit a sexual offense.

He was set to be arraigned Thursday morning.

The woman, now 25, came forward this week and told police that Garcia had abducted her and then through physical, mental and sexual abuse kept her from reuniting with her family since her 2004 disappearance.

Police say Garcia forced the woman to marry in 2007 and fathered a daughter with her in 2012.
