A 34-year-old Louisiana man is accused of raping an 11-year-old African American girl, then driving her to the hospital hoping she could get a "quick" abortion.
MTO News confirmed that Wendell Sanchez, 34, has been arrested after trying to elude police.
Last weekend, the Ascension Parish Sheriff was called to investigate a report about the molestation of an 11-year-old girl.
When they arrived at a local hospital, deputies “learned that 34-year-old Wendell brought a juvenile to the emergency room who had been complaining of abdominal pains and was waiting in his vehicle,” according to the Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office.
The 11-year-old girl was found to be pregnant, driven to the hospital by 34-year-old Wendell who police believe could be the father. The little girl seemed to say that she wanted "an abortion."

The child's pregnancy immediately raised red flags at the hospital, and they called the police.
When deputies arrived, Wendell drove off. The officers chased him, and eventually stopped and arrested the alleged child predator.

- First-degree rape with a victim under the age of 13
