The former boyfriend of a woman forcibly taken from her home and assaulted early Wednesday morning has been charged with kidnapping.
Jackson County prosecutors also charged Stephan W. Drake, 27, of Kansas City, Kan., with second-degree domestic assault. His bond is set at $150,000.
According to police reports and court records, a man forced the woman from her home in the 8100 block of Flora Avenue and drove her around while punching and threatening her. At one point, the woman jumped from the moving car but her assailant dragged her back.
She eventually escaped and ran for help.
