Sexual Assault Remains Under Investigation By Osawatomie Police, KBI

A 24-year-old Overland Park man is facing rape and other felony charges following a reported sexual

assault earlier today in Osawatomie.

The man is in Osawatomie police custody, and is expected to be booked into the Miami County Jail later

tonight.

Police were dispatched to a location in the southeast section of Osawatomie at approximately 9:15 a.m.

today after an individual reported a sexual assault occurred moments before. When officers arrived,

they spoke with the victim, who was found seriously injured and rushed to an area hospital for

treatment. Officers also spoke to witnesses to the incident as well as the man, who was initially a person

of interest in the case.

Authorities reported the Overland Park man was eventually taken into custody in connection with the

incident.

As part of the ongoing investigation, the OPD and the KBI are continuing to conduct interviews, and are

seeking any additional witnesses who may have information pertaining to the incident.
