PORTLAND, Ore. -- A Northeast Portland man is behind bars for allegedly raping a woman at gunpoint last weekend.

Detectives say 26-year-old Kurtis Raymond Steltz met the alleged victim on Craigslist. According to investigators, the woman was advertising an exotic massage.

The two met Saturday night at 181st and Glisan. Authorities say Steltz pulled out a gun and led the woman to nearby Kirk Park.

Detectives say the victim threatened to scream if Steltz did not drop the gun, which he agreed to do, but moments later, they say, he raped her on a park picnic table.

Not long after the alleged rape a passer-by spotted what was going on and Steltz bolted from the scene, police said.

On Monday police arrested Steltz on rape, sodomy, and kidnapping charges. He was jailed on $750,000 bond.
