Police say a Wichita man has been charged with the kidnapping and rape of a runaway girl he lured into his car. 

Gerardo Aguero-Hernandez, 26, was arrested Thursday on charges of rape, aggravated kidnapping and aggravated battery. Police say the victim was younger than 14. 

The girl told police she had run away from a foster home on May 22 and was walking along a Wichita road when Aguero-Hernandez offered to give her a ride. Police say that instead of taking her to the place she asked to be driven, Aguero-Hernandez drove to a park and assaulted her in the car. 

She was later able to escape and have someone call 911.
