A rape was reported early Friday at a Crown Center hotel, and authorities arrested a 26-year-old man who was staying at a different hotel.
Police were called about 2:30 a.m. to the Sheraton Kansas City Hotel at Crown Center after a witness reported seeing a rape in progress.
According to statements given to police, the suspect, the alleged victim and some other people had been drinking together earlier in the evening.
Later, the witness walked into the victim’s room and saw the suspect having sex with the victim, who appeared to be unconscious, the witness later told police. The witness said she yelled at the man, who got dressed and left.
The alleged victim later told police that she didn’t remember anything after drinking at the bar until waking and hearing the witness yelling at the suspect.
Police were able to track down the suspect because he had given the witness a business card while they were at the bar.
