Kansas City man charged with attempted rape

A 37-year-old Kansas City man will face criminal charges for allegedly trying to rape a woman.

Jackson County prosecutors charged the man with attempted rape or sexual assault, assault and felonious restraint in connection with a Dec. 5 incident.

According to court records, the alleged victim told police she was spending time with several friends at a mobile trailer. The woman admits they were drinking. She told police that everyone except her alleged attacker eventually left the area.

Once they were alone, the man began making sexual advances, the woman says. When the woman refused to have sex with him, the man allegedly grabbed her and tried to take her clothes off. Court documents indicate the woman tried to run, but the man stopped her and punched her in the face several times.

An elderly neighbor allegedly heard the woman yelling for help and looked in her window. The elderly neighbor told police that when he supposedly saw the 37-year-old man choking the woman, he went and got a neighbor and another man to help.

According to court documents, the three men then tried to break into the locked trailer. The 37-year-old man allegedly exited the trailer and charged at them.

One of the men fired three warning shots and told the victim to lie on the ground until police officers arrived at the scene, according to court documents. When police arrived, the woman's face allegedly was covered with blood and her eye was swollen.

Although the man faces serious charges that stem from a slew of allegations made by various parties, he is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
