An illegal immigrant from Guatemala was arrested in Phoenix, Arizona, after he allegedly impregnated his 11-year-old girlfriend.

Carlos Jacinto Cobo-Perez, 20, admitted to investigators that he had sex with the girl near her elementary school, according to a probable cause statement filed by the Phoenix Police on May 18.


Cobo-Perez’s relationship with the girl was revealed after her mother noticed a hickey on her daughter’s neck in Nov. 2018, reported The Arizona Republic. Cobo-Perez confessed the relationship a month later during an interview with police. He acknowledged that he knew her age and that the relationship was wrong. Cobo-Perez subsequently stated that he would end contact with the girl.

However, the girl was taken to Phoenix Children’s Hospital on May 17 where a pregnancy test returned a positive result.

“He called me last Friday crying, telling me he got his girlfriend pregnant and I didn’t believe it,”a friend of Cobo-Perez told FOX-5. “She really loved him with all her heart, but her parents would not let her see him.”

The girl’s parents provided the Moon Valley Justice Court a letter that Cobo-Perez sent to the girl where he explained that he could go to jail for the relationship but did not care, according to police filings.

He faces charges of sexual conduct with a minor and aggravated assault and is currently jailed on a $150,000 cash-only bond.

“On May 18, 2019, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) lodged an immigration detainer with the Maricopa County Jail on Carlos Jacinto Cobo-Perez, 20, an illegal alien from Guatemala, following his criminal arrest for two felony counts of sexual conduct with a minor and one felony count of aggravated assault,” ICE said in a statement.
