'Torture and Rape' Part of Mo. Home Invasion
GRANDVIEW - Police say "torture and rape" were part of an armed home invasion in the Kansas City suburb of Grandview.
The Kansas City Star reports that at least three armed suspects broke into a single-family home around 2 a.m. Sunday. Police say a 21-year-old woman was raped and three men -- ranging in age from 25 to 57 -- were scalded with hot grease.
The invasion lasted more than three hours. Afterward, the four victims were taken to a hospital for treatment. Police say one victim suffered ankle injuries when he was assaulted with a power tool.
None of the injuries were believed to be life threatening.
Police say the suspects fled the neighborhood after stealing a vehicle that later was recovered unoccupied in Kansas City.
