As soon as his flight from Haiti landed in Miami, a 47-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of impregnating a 10-year-old.

Raymond Vincent was “expelled from Haiti” by the Haitian government, wrote Detective Tracy Figone, spokeswoman for the Fort Lauderdale Police Department, in an email. He was arrested Friday on a Fort Lauderdale arrest warrant. He was charged with sexual battery on a child under 12 and lewd lascivious conduct.

Investigators told Miami Herald news partner CBS4 Vincent was a family friend of the young girl, who showed up to a hospital in February complaining of stomach pains. She was pregnant.

Meanwhile, police said, Vincent fled to Haiti. U.S. Marshals flew to Port-au-Prince and brought him back to Fort Lauderdale detectives.

He was found not guilty on four counts of child molestation in 2012, records show. At the time, Local10 reported, he was a youth pastor at a Pompano Beach church. Investigators told the station Vincent lured the young girl inside his home with food, and the girl said he’d molested her twice in 2011 as well.
