A 50-year-old man has been arrested and charged with impregnating a 14-year-old girl, officials said. 

The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office said the suspect, who is in a familial/custodial position, forced the victim, who was 13-years-old at the time, to have sexual intercourse. The incident occurred sometime in 2016. 

As a result of the sexual battery, officials said the victim became pregnant and gave birth to a baby girl in September 2017. 

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement conducted a DNA test, proving that the suspect is the biological father of the child. 

The 50-year-old was arrested and charged with sexual battery (familial/custodial) and child abuse (impregnation). 

Bay News 9 is not releasing the name of the suspect in order to protect the victim's identity.
