Ice cream man accused of impregnating girl, 9
A Maryvale man suspected of sexually assaulting and impregnating a 9-year-old Phoenix girl lured the youngster into his ice cream van and threatened to kill her mother if the child told, police said.
Adrian Cruz Gonzalez, 22, reportedly knew the child's mother and would take the girl along as he sold ice cream in west Phoenix neighborhoods, Phoenix police Detective Tony Morales said.
Police believe Gonzalez assaulted the child at least once in his van and at his apartment in the 4600 block of West Hubbell Street.
The girl eventually told her mother, who reported the incident to police, Morales said.
Medical tests confirmed the girl is pregnant, but carrying the baby to term could be life-threatening, police said.
Gonzalez was booked Tuesday into Madison Street Jail and faces two counts of sexual misconduct with a minor and two counts of kidnapping, Morales said.

This is so sad. I'm assuming the girl was an early bloomer...menstruating and all to be that young and able to get pregnant?"It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog." - Mark Twain
