OLATHE, Kan. (AP) — One of two men charged with kidnapping and raping a Kansas sheriff’s deputy has been charged with sexual assaulting a Missouri woman in February while the woman’s 2-year-old daughter was in the same bed.

Jackson County, Missouri, prosecutors said Brady Newman-Caddell was charged Friday with first-degree rape, two counts of sodomy and first-degree child endangerment.

DNA evidence from the October assault of a non-uniformed Johnson County, Kansas, sheriff’s deputy linked him to the February attack in Independence, Missouri. The deputy was abducted from the parking lot of the detention center in Olathe, Kansas, as she was headed to work, and she was released about two hours later.

The second suspect in the deputy’s rape has not been charged in the Missouri assault.

Newman-Caddell is jailed in Johnson County on $1 million bond related to charges involving the deputy. Jackson County prosecutors have requested a $150,000 in their case filed Friday.

Newman-Caddell’s Kansas attorney, Michael McCulloch, declined to comment.

In an affidavit that accompanied Friday’s criminal complaint, Independence police Det. Jeff Pagel wrote that the Independence mother told investigators she was awakened in her apartment at about 1 a.m. on Feb. 9 and found a stranger in her bedroom.

The woman reported that during the ensuing sexual attack she said lasted nearly three hours and involved as many as four suspects, she did not fight her attackers and tried to make them believe she would not call police, Pagel wrote.

The assailants then left, with one of them noting to the woman that it was one attacker’s birthday, Pagel wrote. The woman then notified police and sought hospital treatment.

Newman-Caddell later told police that he lived in the same apartment complex as the Independence mother and sexually attacked her with just one friend, Pagel wrote.
