Arriving just before 4 a.m., police found a 20-year-old St. Joseph, Mo., woman who allegedly had been raped by a 24-year-old Leavenworth man. The Kansas Highway Patrol had transported the woman to the hospital, police said.

¢ A 26-year-old Lawrence man reported that he was attacked Jan. 23 by two unidentified men during a disagreement about a barstool at Cross Town Tavern, 1910 Haskell Ave. The victim alleged the men stole his gold-and-diamond ring, valued at $1,400.

Injury accidents
