The suspect in a 2009 home invasion assault, robbery and kidnapping in Kansas City, Kan., has admitted his guilt on multiple felony charges.
Raymond Davis, 42, pleaded guilty this week in Wyandotte County District Court to aggravated kidnapping, aggravated robbery, aggravated burglary and three counts of aggravated assault, prosecutors said.
The incident began when a woman arrived at home while Davis was burglarizing her residence. Prosecutors said he held her at gunpoint while stealing items in the house. He fired shots at her and when she attempted to escape, he chased her, beat her and forced her into a van.
He fired shots at neighbors who heard her screaming and tried to help her. They were not injured.
After driving around for several hours, Davis let her out of the van and she called police.
The prosecution was delayed because Davis was arrested in Missouri and incarcerated there for a parole violation until he was returned to Wyandotte County early last year.
His sentencing is scheduled for May 10.
