SPRINGFIELD TOWNSHIP (FOX19) - Police arrested a man for allegedly raping a teenage girl while holding her at gunpoint.

Police say 19-year old Paul Gatewood put a gun to a 14-year old girl's head Monday and forced her to have sex with him.

Other juveniles were believed to have been in the room during the rape.  The weapon turned out to be a BB gun.

Police arrested Gatewood Tuesday evening.  He is being held on kidnapping and rape charges.

Gatewood's aunt, Viola Harris told FOX19 she believes Gatewood was set up and could have been trying to impress the other juveniles.  

"Paul was wrong for what he did, but also, he was set up to what he did. And you know, she didn't know Paul had all them problems. She didn't know Paul was that easily to be influenced," says Harris.

Gatewood's bond was set at $75,000. He will be in court again on July 7.
