A Kansas City teenager is accused of beating a 93-year-old man and raping an 84-year-old woman during a daytime burglary at the couple's home.
The Jackson County prosecutor's office announced the charges Tuesday against 18-year-old Tony Putman, who was arrested a day earlier in what police said was the couple's car.
A phone number for Putman could not be found. Court records did not list a lawyer for him Tuesday.
Police said the husband was napping Monday afternoon when an intruder hit him in the face and tied him with belts. The wife returned home from errands and was also tied.
Investigators say the wife gave the intruder $5 to start, then $400 she had just withdrawn from a bank. Police say the intruder then raped the woman and fled.
