From Christine Vendel: A woman who placed an advertisement in an alternative weekly newspaper offering massages told Kansas City police she was raped Thursday in a motel room.
The 27-year-old woman said a man called her in response to her ad and she agreed to provide one hour of massage for $100. The man showed up at the motel in the 8200 block of Hickman Mills Road about 10:45 a.m. and told her he was a police officer. He threatened to arrest her if she didn’t have sex with him. Police reports noted that the suspect did not show the victim any identification, badge or uniform.
The woman said she complied out of fear. The woman later screamed for help and the suspect reportedly told her: “You just made a big mistake. I’m gonna kill your family!”
The suspect then fled. He was described as white, 6 feet tall, 175 pounds, with a blonde crew cut. He wore a gray shirt and blue jeans. Police said the victim’s 3-month-old baby was asleep in a car seat in the bathroom during the attack.
