Fugitive Friday: Child abuser finds victim at high hchool football game

PHOENIX - Each Friday, we're looking for your help to track down fugitives in Arizona.

Wanted: Luis Cardenas
Charges: Probation violation on original charges of child abuse and possession of burglary tools

Court documents show that in 2016, 20-year-old Cardenas met up with a 15-year-old girl at a high school football game. 

He later asked her for a date, and they went to a movie. 

After the movie, he took the girl to a friend's home, where they reportedly got alcohol to drink. 

Documents state that Cardenas and the victim then went to a park, where the girl became intoxicated, and they had sex in the back seat of a car several times over a five-hour period. 

Cardenas pleaded guilty to child abuse with sexual motivation and was given 10-year probation that started on January 23, 2017. 

He was scheduled to report to a probation officer the following week, but never did, and hasn't been seen since. 

Cardenas is now 22 years old. He is 5 feet 8 inches tall, and weighs 130 pounds. He has black hair and green eyes. 

If you know anything about his whereabouts, please contact Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.
