An officer with the Philadelphia Police Department told Fox News the teen posed as someone older and met Kaufman on the app Monday. That same day, the victim agreed to meet Kaufman at a local park, police told Fox News, adding that she was accompanied by her 19-year-old cousin.

Police said they all decided to go back to Kaufman’s home and the teen was raped after her cousin left the house.

A search warrant executed at Kaufman’s home recovered evidence as well as hand grenades, Fox 29 reported.
