MMA fighter accused of repeatedly raping 15-year-old girl

ALBUQUERQUE, NM (KOB) — A New Mexico mixed martial arts fighter is behind bars, charged with raping a 15-year-girl repeatedly in 2015.

Stephen Cervantes, 22, was out on bond at the time of the assaults after charges of kidnapping, aggravated assault, and rape.

He appeared before a judge Saturday and has not posted bail this time.

Court documents claim Cervantes took advantage of a 15-year-old girl by having sex with her four or five times. The girl claims the first time happened at a part where she was drinking. She claimed Cervantes started to kiss her before pinning her down with his legs. She stated to police, “she wanted the sex to stop but she didn’t know how.”

The girl told officers Cervantes raped her again at another party where he “became very physical and forceful.”

Cervantes was also arrested in 2014 on kidnapping, criminal sexual penetration and tampering with evidence charges.
