2 assaults reported in Basehor
Basehor police arrested one man and are searching for another in two unrelated assault cases over the weekend.
On Saturday, May 1, Basehor police officer Andrew Slaughter took a report from a woman claiming her boyfriend assaulted her at approximately 8:20 a.m. while both were inside a vehicle on Parallel Road. The woman, a Basehor resident, got away and called police from a pay telephone inside Casey's General Store.
The man, also a Basehor resident, is still at large, said interim police chief Martin Cigich.
The second assault occurred that afternoon, at approximately 2:35 p.m., in the 1900 block of N. 153rd Terrace. There, police said a man wrecked his vehicle into a vehicle owned by another man, and soon after assaulted him with a baseball bat.
The victim ran away and called the police. Slaughter apprehended the 46-year-old man, arresting him on charges of aggravated assault, criminal damage to property and possession of drug paraphernalia. Police said the man also had a pipe believed to be used for smoking methamphetamine on his person.
The man was transported to the Leavenworth County Jail.
