5 Women Attacked In 5 Months In Waldo Area
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A man who purportedly matched the description of the Waldo rapist was tracked by a vigilant citizen Wednesday night.
Police said a citizen spotted the man and followed his car into Kansas City, Kan.
The man being followed stopped in front of a house near Ninth Street and Cleveland Avenue, went inside the house and came back out with a gun. He then fired a few shots at the person who'd been following him.
No one was injured.
The shooter ran away, but police later tracked him down. He was taken into custody for firing the gun.
Police said the man is not the Waldo rapist.
Police urge residents not to risk danger or to take matters into their own hands, but to call them instead.
The attacker is described as a black man, about 6 feet tall and 250 pounds. He's in his 30s, is bald and has acne scarring on his face. He has a deep, smooth voice and bad breath. He may also smell of exhaust fumes.
Five women have been attacked in the last five months.
The most recent happened early Monday morning. Authorities said they were called to the 300 block of East 69th Terrace at about 3 a.m.
Investigators said that the victim was a 33-year-old woman. Police said the attacker entered the woman's house through an unlocked window.
Previous attacks happened were reported at 9:50 p.m. on Jan. 23 in the 8300 block of Mercier Street, and another at 12:30 a.m. Jan. 24 in the 10 block of East Porte Cimi Pas.
Investigators believe the same man is responsible for two sexual assaults last fall. Those occurred on Sept. 29, 2009, in the 7500 block of Summit and on Oct. 11, 2009, in the 100 block of East 78th Terrace. ..Source.. by KMBC.com
