More Charges For Attempted Kidnapping, Sodomy

A Holts Summit man already charged with attempted kidnapping and rape is now facing additional charges for an incident in Boone County.

Forty nine year old Anthony Rowell is being held on a $500 thousand dollar bond for kidnapping and sodomy or attempted sodomy.


According to court documents, the victim had left a Columbia bar and ran out of gas on Highway 63. While she was sitting in the car a man pulled over and identified himself as a police officer. Rowell allegedly told the woman she would be in trouble for driving drunk. He then told her if she performed a sex act on him, he wouldn’t arrest her.

Rowell then drove her home.
