KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Jackson County prosecutors filed charges on Friday against a Kansas City man in the carjacking of a woman’s vehicle at a Midtown gas station.

Prosecutors charged 34-year-old Keith B. Hudson with first-degree robbery 1st Degree and receiving stolen property.

According to the probable cause document, a victim reported to police that a man approached her at a gas station near 38th and Broadway. The woman told police that while she was sitting in her car looking for money, Hudson opened her driver’s door, put what she believed to be a gun to her side and told her to get out of the car and leave her purse. Hudson then fled the gas station in her vehicle.

Police tracked the vehicle to a location on Paseo, took Hudson into custody and found other reported stolen items, including credit cards and IDs.

Prosecutors requested that Hudson’s bond be set at $100,000 cash.
