Two Berks County men are being held on a million dollars bail for the alleged rape of a 14-year-old girl.

Police say the crime began on Facebook.

Prosecutors say 20-year-old Gaspar Perez and 22-year-old Randy Hernandez befriended the victim on social media.

Shortly after they met, police say, the pair brought her to Reading, supplied her with marijuana, and then assaulted her.

Authorities are using this case as a reminder for parents to monitor their children's online activities.
