Columbus teen accused of rape pleads not guilty

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

In court Wednesday, 18-year-old Kevin Henderson entered a plea of not guilty.  Investigators say Henderson pistol-whipped and raped a 16-year-old at the Kabar Apartments on Mason Drive in Columbus. 

She was unable to get away, that's when she ran to a home across the street.

Investigators added Henderson forced her to take off her clothes and have sex with him in the bathroom of this apartment.

Henderson says the two had consensual sex and the victim was his girlfriend. He was given the opportunity for bond.  It is not known at this time whether or not he will bond out. 

The victim, on the otherhand, is being held in the Columbus Youth Detention Center on prior charges. 

There is no word yet on when this case will be brought before a judge again.
