KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Police are investigating after a 71-year-old woman was raped in her apartment over a period of several hours on Thursday night.

According to Kansas City Missouri Police, the woman had fallen asleep in her living room in the apartment near East 10th Street and Benton on Thursday evening. When she awoke around 7:30 p.m. to get a glass of water, police say that she discovered a strange man in her kitchen, who threatened her before repeatedly raping and sodomizing her over the course of the next four hours.

The woman went to an area hospital around 1:30 a.m., where she was treated for internal injuries.

"They don't bother nobody at this building over here and for her to be raped repeatedly like that, that's just horrendous. For real? It's like scary and I'm like very nervous," neighbor Candice Johnson told FOX 4 News.

Police would not say if the attacker, who also took pictures of the woman during the attack, stole anything from the home. Police did not release a description of the attacker.

Anyone with information about the attack is urged to call the TIPS Hotline at (816) 474-TIPS.
