VIDEO: KS Deputy Kidnapped and Sexually Assaulted
The Johnson County (KS) Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's help in finding a car that was used in the kidnapping and sexual assault of a deputy on Friday night, reports KCTV.
At around 11:30 p.m., the car was seen in Olathe, KS, in a parking lot adjacent to the Johnson County Sheriff's Office Adult Detention Center.
The off-duty deputy had just parked her car and was walking to work from the parking lot to the Central Booking building. Then, a white man in the car forced the deputy into the car against her will.
The sheriff believes two men were involved in the kidnapping, and the deputy did not know either of the men in the car.
Cameras at a QuikTrip just down the road caught the car on surveillance just a few minutes earlier, so the sheriff believes the car tailed her to work.
The deputy was sexually assaulted, and she escaped from the car around 1:30 a.m. on Saturday nearly 30 miles away in Lee's Summit, MO.
The deputy was released from the hospital on Saturday.
The Johnson County Sheriff's Office has now also announced a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrests of the two men who kidnapped and assaulted the deputy, reports WDAF-TV.
