RACINE — A Racine man accused of raping a 12-year-old girl who later gave birth was arrested Tuesday after being wanted for more than a year, according to court records.
Lorenzo Bernabe-Lucas, 29, of the 600 block of 13th Street, faces a felony charge of first-degree sexual assault of a child under 13.
Bernabe-Lucas allegedly raped the then-12-year-old two or three times between May and July 2017, according to the criminal complaint.
The girl gave birth to a baby last March. A DNA test reportedly found Bernabe-Lucas to be the father and a warrant was issued for his arrest two days later.
