"Mr. Nunez-Martinez stated that he had sexual intercourse with (the teen) because he loved her very much," the police report states.
In Arkansas, local police began searching for the girl, who was reported as missing and a possible runaway. At some point while in the man's apartment, the teen used her cell phone to call her mom, saying she was in Georgia, scared and wanted to come home, police said.
The girl's mom called local police, who then called Gwinnett County police. On Dec. 24 around 6:20 p.m., Gwinnett officers were sent to the Sinclair Apartments, where the teen came out of a bedroom holding two bags. She told police she hadn't been held against her will, according to the police report.
Nunez-Martinez was arrested and charged with two counts of statutory rape and interference with custody, according to Gwinnett jail records. He is also being held on an immigration violation and remained in jail Friday.
A family member drove to Gwinnett County to pick up the teen, police said.
