KC man charged in kidnapping, sex assault
A Kansas City man was charged Monday with kidnapping and sexually assaulting a woman in midtown last September.

Testing of genetic material recovered from the 19-year-old woman’s body linked Trevino J. Cox to the crime, according to court documents.

Cox, 25, was charged in Jackson County Circuit Court with kidnapping and two counts of forcible sodomy.

The victim told police that she was walking in the area of 37th and Main streets when two men offered her crack cocaine, which she declined. One of them then grabbed her arm and they forced her to walk about a block and down an exterior staircase that was hidden from view.

One of the men then sodomized her orally and anally. He then tried to hand her some cocaine, but she ran away, she reported.
