A Fall River man who is accused of impregnating his daughter is back in Massachusetts to face charges.

According to the Fulton County Georgia Sheriff’s Office, earlier this month, the Fall River Police Department reached out to the Scorpion Unit with a 14-year-old victim, impregnated by her father. The Scorpion Unit, a special violent crime-suppression unit, acted quickly, fearing the suspect was planning on flying to Puerto Rico where he has family ties.

Roque Garcia-Ortiz is charged with 3 counts of Rape, 3 counts of Aggravated Rape of a child, and 1 count of Rape of child with force.

The Scorpion Unit located Ortiz at a hotel in East Point. He was brought in without incident.

Garcia-Ortiz was released from Fulton County custody late last week.

The Bristol County District Attorney’s Office requested Garcia-Ortiz be held for a dangerousness hearing, which is scheduled for May 2. He will be held without bail pending the results of that upcoming hearing.
