KANSAS CITY, Mo. (WDAF) -- Jackson County prosecutors on Sunday charged Kevin W. March with first-degree robbery, four counts of first-degree kidnapping, two counts of first-degree assault, three counts of first-degree sodomy, rape or attempted rape and third-degree assault.

These incidents allegedly happened from June 2019 to January 2020 involving three unrelated women. Two of those women said they met March on Craigslist.

Court records state March gagged one victim with her shirt and tied the gag around her head, covered her head like a hood and duct-taped her hands and feet. They met on Craigslist and decided to meet in person. The victim told police March forced her to ingest drugs. Then they allegedly committed two burglaries, one in which March allegedly forced the victim with a handgun.

In January of this year, an unrelated woman said March stole her car, assaulted her and held her against her will at an apartment building on Newton Avenue in Kansas City.

The victim said she confronted March about the stolen vehicle. That's when he put a black pellet gun to the side of her head, fired several pellets and punched her face several times.

Another victim reported after she accepted a ride from March, he forced her to take meth and perform sexual acts on him and others at several locations on January 26, 2020.
