While awaiting trial for second degree rape from an August charge, a Guymon man has been arrested for the abduction of a person under 15 years of age as well as breaking and entering.

According to the story, a concerned mother contacted the Guymon Police Department after realizing her daughter was not in school. She reported to police she suspected her daughter of running away out of state with her boyfriend Martin Cruz. Cruz is her daughter's boyfriend who has already had charges filed for having sexual contact with her daughter back in August. The police issued the juvenile into the National Crime Information Center and a BOLO was issued, she was considered a runaway at this point.

The story goes on to say that after officers spoke with the juvenile's friends and others who knew them. There was talk of the couple fleeing to Mexico and also Wisconsin. Through investigation, they discovered the couple had been staying in an abandoned house on South Beaver, a home in which they broke into in order to dwell.

Upon arrival of the abandoned home, officers located Cruz and his underaged girlfriend. They were both taken to the Guymon Police Department where Cruz was taken into custody and escorted to the Texas County Detention Center where he is being charged with the abduction of a person under 15 years of age, a felony, a crime punishable by imprisonment for not less than one year or not more than five years and/or a fine of not more than $1,000 and burglary in the second degree, a felony, a crime punishable by imprisonment for not less than two years to not more than seven years and a fine up to $10,000. Cruz is currently being held on a bond of $75,000 and is awaiting his next court appearance.
