Police: Teen Raped By MySpace Friend

Full story and MySpace profile:

A 13-year-old West Islip girl climbed out of her bathroom window and into the Jeep of a 20-year-old man she met on MySpace. He took her to his Bayport home and raped her, police said Tuesday.

It was the end result of an online relationship that the girl's parents knew nothing about, even though police say her father did "everything in his power" to monitor her activity on the Internet. "He was doing what any good parent would do," Det. Sgt. Thomas Groneman of Suffolk's Third Squad said Tuesday afternoon.

Despite those efforts, the girl managed to get regular access to a laptop computer in her home. For six weeks, she communicated with Zachary Rapoza, 20, of 27 Barrett Ave., a boiler repairman who was due to be sworn in to the Bayport Fire Department this week.
