32-year-old Jason Johnson has been held for trial in the kidnapping and rape of a 16-year-old girl in the Kensington section of Philadelphia. The teenager was walking to Gratz High School earlier this month when she was abducted at gunpoint.

She told police Johnson terrorized her for hours, tying her up, beating and raping her before slashing her throat and throwing her from a car. A passerby found her and rushed her to the hospital.

At the time of the attack, police say Johnson was on parole for another crime.
