Curfew violation coincides with rape

KANSAS CITY, MO (AP) - A "person of interest" in a series of Kansas City rapes violated curfew at prison work-release site on the night 1 of the recent attacks occurred.

52 year old Bernard Jackson faces 15 felony charges relating to Missouri rapes in the mid-1980s. He's also been labeled a "person of interest" in five recent rapes in the city's Waldo neighborhood.

The Kansas City Star reported that officials issued an arrest warrant after Jackson missed curfew by at least three hours Feb. 22. But they canceled it when he returned to the Kansas City Community Release Center.

A woman was raped from about 1:30 to 3 that morning.

Jackson was assigned to the facility after he was paroled in December 2008. He had served 24 years in prison for a 1984 burglary and attempted rape in the Waldo area.
