Man found guilty of holding woman captive, raping her

OLATHE, Kan. (AP) — A man has been convicted of holding a woman against her will in her suburban Kansas City apartment for several weeks and sexually assaulting her.

The Kansas City Star reports that jurors found 38-year-old Anthony Darryl Allen guilty Wednesday of one count aggravated kidnapping and two counts of rape.

Police arrested Allen in August 2015 after officers were dispatched to the woman's apartment in Lenexa, Kansas, for a welfare check. Allen initially refused to come out of the apartment but eventually surrendered to police.

Charges were filed after the woman told police Allen wasn't allowing her to leave the apartment and had raped her.

His sentencing is scheduled for Nov. 7.
