FAYETTEVILLE, NC - On November 12, police arrested Eduardo Rubio, 26, after he reportedly physically attacked a young girl, and tried to run her over with his vehicle.
The girl was strangled multiple times, until she passed out, according to a police report.
Paramedics transported the victim from an apartment complex in the 400 block of Murray Fork Drive to Cape Fear Valley Medical Center, where she was treated for several injuries to her face, neck, arms and legs.
Law & Crime reported:
While doctors were evaluating the girl’s injuries, she reportedly said that Rubio had been sexually assaulting her for approximately the last two years, with the abuse beginning when she was 11 years old.
The medical staff subsequently performed a sexual assault exam and discovered that the girl was approximately 4-and-a-half months pregnant, the document stated. The young victim, whose name was withheld from court documents, reportedly told doctors and investigators that she already knew she was pregnant and that the pregnancy was the result of being sexually abused by Rubio.
Rubio has been charged with three counts of assault by strangulation, statutory rape, attempted first-degree murder, attempted murder of an unborn child and first-degree kidnapping. He is currently being held at the Cumberland County Jail without bond.
