Her name has not been released, but she claims she was held against her will and forced to marry Isidro Garcia. She alleges the now 41-year-old man was her mother's boyfriend who had kidnapped her when she was just 15.

Police haven't charged Garcia yet, but he's been booked on suspicion of kidnapping for rape and false imprisonment, among other charges. We're joined now by KPCC's Adolfo Guzman Lopez, who's been reporting on the case for KPCC.
