    A 17-year-old boy who used a gun to force a girl off a bike path and rape her as she walked to school in Escondido pleaded guilty Tuesday to rape during a kidnapping. 

VISTA (CNS) - A sexual predator who was 17 when he used a gun to force a teenage girl off a bike path and rape her as she walked to school in Escondido was sentenced Thursday to 15 years to life in state prison.

Daniel Joseph Entzminger -- who was prosecuted as an adult -- pleaded guilty last November to rape during a kidnapping.

Escondido police Lt. Craig Carter said the brazen attack took place in a normally populated spot along a flood-control channel about 8:30 a.m. last July 9.

When Entzminger, now 18, was arrested the next day, he was found with items belonging to the 16-year-old victim, Carter said.

The girl was on the bike path near North Ash Street and East Valley Parkway when she passed her attacker, who was wearing a dirty T-shirt and blue jeans and white-framed sunglasses, the lieutenant said.

When the girl looked back at him, he had pulled a black mask over his face and was running toward her with a pistol. He put the barrel to her ribs and ordered her into some bushes, where he raped her, Carter said.
