A 13-year-old girl told police she was raped by a stranger who followed her into her apartment complex gym.

The victim told police she had been with friends Oct. 10 at Summit Grove Apartments, 18001 Highland Park Road, before going to the gym to walk on the treadmill.

She felt uneasy when approached by a black male in his early 20s she had seen playing basketball at a nearby park, she told police. He followed her into the bathroom and raped her, she said.

The gym did not have a camera system, according to a police incident report. The victim's mother called police Sunday when her daughter told her what happened.
