(ABC 6 News) -- He was wanted in two armed robberies that started in Mankato and ended in a nine hour stand off in Austin earlier this year.  Wednesday we've learned Thomas Kendricks III is facing more charges.

He is already facing assault and robbery charges and now he faces several criminal sexual conduct charges in Blue Earth County accused of having sex with a minor.

According the criminal complaint Kendricks had sex with a 14-year-old girl who may be pregnant with his child.
Court documents say the two engaged in online conversations and were found together in Minnesota Lake when authorities executed a search warrant.
The teenager had been missing from Makato since January.  Kendricks denied having sex with the girl, but a pregnancy test proved the girl was pregnant.

Court documents also reveal the 14-year-old girl made arrangements to terminate the pregnancy.

Authorities issued a warrant and are now waiting for DNA results from the fetal tissue to see if it matches Kendricks.

We also did some digging and found Kendricks does have a criminal history including convictions of aggravated robbery, burglary and tampering with a motor vehicle.
