Kansas City police are looking for a man who choked and raped a 26-year-old woman who was walking through a Northland apartment complex early Friday.

The victim was heading to a relative’s apartment in the 6600 block of North Pennsylvania Avenue about 1 a.m., she said, when a stranger grabbed her from behind. He dragged her to a patio area, threatened her with a gun and asked if she had any money, police said. He choked her until she passed out, then raped her. He fled on foot and she ran to her relative’s home to call 911.

Police did not release a detailed description of the attacker.
