Kansas City woman claims man assaulted her for two days

A 56-year-old Kansas City man was arrested May 16, 2012, and charged with two counts of attempted forcible rape, a count of forcible sodomy and kidnapping. At his preliminary hearing on May 17, a Jackson County Circuit Court judge set the man's bond at $150,000.

According to prosecutors, the man confined a woman in his home for two days, tortured and sexually assaulted her. The woman allegedly escaped through a window and ran down the street wearing only a sheet.

The woman told police officers that she met the man in a nightclub. On May 10, 2012, she agreed to have a dinner date with him. After picking her up, the man allegedly told the woman he had forgotten his credit card and needed to stop by his house.

When they arrived at his house, the man allegedly invited the woman to walk inside with him. She told police officers that once she was inside his home, the man locked her in and began punching and kicking her.

He then threatened to kill her if she refused to have sexual relations with him, according to court records. The woman told police officers that the man repeatedly assaulted her and used an electric stun gun to shock her several times.

The woman said the abuse continued throughout the next day. On May 12, 2012, the man allegedly told the woman he was leaving to get some food. Court records indicate he threatened to use the stun gun on her when he returned if she refused to have sex with him again.

According to court records, the woman took advantage of his absence to remove the screen from a window and flee. A neighbor called the police, and the woman was treated at a local hospital for numerous injuries. When police searched the man's home, they allegedly found the woman's keys, clothing and jewelry.

When sensational details like this are reported in the media, telling your side of the story may be the only way to avoid long-term social stigma. An attorney can guide you through the legal process, and help you make good decisions about what details to share.
