Alleged child rapist flees hospital after learning 11-year-old is pregnant

A Louisiana man brought his alleged 11-year-old rape victim to the hospital, only to lead police on a chase when doctors learned the girl was pregnant with his child.

Wendell Sanchez, 34, dropped off the child at the emergency room and waited in his vehicle after she complained of stomach pains, according to police.

Staff alerted cops that the girl was pregnant and Sanchez was believed to be the father.

When deputies arrived, Sanchez fled, abandoning his car and running to a nearby apartment complex.

Police found him hiding on a patio, where they say he was in possession of illegal narcotics, marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

Sanchez faces a slew of felony charges, including first-degree rape with a victim under the age of 13 and the creation of a clandestine lab.

His bond is set at more than a half-million dollars.
