Woman held captive by boyfriend for four months, rescued after desperate note in rent

Boyfriend, btbA Kansas woman has been saved from the clutches of a boyfriend who held her captive in their apartment for four months after the victim managed to slip a desperate note in with her rent check.

The victim, who has not been identified, was being held against her will inside her home at the Lenexa Pointe Apartments in Lenexa, she told police.

The apartment managed found a note asking for help in an envelope next to the woman’s check, which was left in the rent-drop box as per usual.

The manager then called police, who formed a plan to get the woman out with the help of a maintenance worker on Sunday.

The worker, Michael Reyes, was told to knock on the door and tell a cover story about a plumbing problem.

‘You know, I was nervous because I didn’t know if the guy had a gun or a knife, but I went over there and knocked on the door, and I said, ‘Maintenance,’ and got her outside, and said the downstairs below is leaking,’ Reyes told KSHB.

The suspect, Anthony Allen, 34, was sitting on the couch in the apartment at the time.

Once the victim got outside, she quietly motioned to Reyes

‘She was like, ”I hope this is what I think it is”, you know what I mean?’ Reyes told the network.

‘When I said ‘Go downstairs’ and she just went, like that.

‘She was quick, she didn’t even hesitate.

‘We got downstairs and that’s when she finally, like, looked so relieved, but at the same time, was shaking really bad and like, started crying.’

Police then went inside the apartment and arrested Allen.

He has been charged with two counts of rape and one count of kidnapping.

According to police, the woman was held against her will from April 1 to August 2.

Reyes said the victim didn’t get to talk to him long, but she did tell him thank you.

Allen is being held in jail on a $500,000 bond.
