Lazaro Lopez Gomez, 23, is being held at the Northwestern Regional Adult Detention Center.
Gomez was arrested on Friday, after he allegedly had sex with the teenager at a party. According to police, the victim reported the encounter earlier this month at the Timbook Safety Center.
He's charged with statutory rape, which means the encounter was consensual, but illegal since the victim is a minor.
