Police arrested a 21-year-old man on suspicion of having sexual relations with a 13-year-old female.

Marco Jarquin-Garcia, 21, of Morgan Hill, was arrested Friday after the victim reported multiple incidents of sexual contact between the two, Sgt. Jerry Neumayer said.

The victim, a Morgan Hill resident, told police that she had sex with Jarquin-Garcia multiple times in the last 90 days, Neumayer said. In the first incident, the suspect allegedly forced her to have sex with him in his vehicle. She told police last week that she now thinks she is pregnant.

The victim and suspect knew each other prior to the incidents, having met through a mutual acquaintance, Neumayer said.

Jarquin-Garcia was booked into county jail on suspicion of rape and lewd and lascivious acts with a child younger than 14.
