A Leavenworth man is accused of threatening a woman in her home several hours after he allegedly burglarized a music store, according to a police official.

Police officers first responded to a burglary at Urban Music, 211 N. Fifth St. The burglary was reported at 7:09 a.m. Thursday.

The burglar removed several items from the store including an instrument, Leavenworth Police Chief Pat Kitchens said.

Police also found blood at the scene which they believe was left by the burglar. Kitchens said police believe the burglar injured himself while forcing his way into the store.

At about 12:45 p.m. Thursday, an officer on patrol in the 700 block of Kiowa Street encountered a vehicle in an alley.

The driver of the other vehicle backed the car into a driveway of a residence.

“The officer became suspicious,” Kitchens said. “They appeared to be trying to avoid detection.”

The officer did a check of the vehicle’s license plate number and learned the car had been reported stolen.

When the officer made his way back to the vehicle, a man who was a passenger had left the car. The driver, a woman, was still in the vehicle.

Inside the car, police located a guitar that is believed to have been taken from the music store. There was blood on the guitar, Kitchens said.

Police believed the passenger had fled to a house in the 700 block of Kiowa Street. Officers spoke with a woman who lives at that residence.

The woman gave police permission to go inside the residence. Police found the suspect inside the home. The 27-year-old man, who had what appeared to be a recent injury, was taken into custody.

The woman who lives at the residence alleged to police that the man entered the home without permission and made threatening statements, Kitchens said.

The man was arrested for allegations of kidnapping, making criminal threats, burglary and possession of stolen property.

Kitchens said the kidnapping allegation is based on information provided by the woman who lives at the residence. But the chief did not provide additional details about the alleged crime.
