Wichita sex offender facing new charges or kidnapping and raping 15-year-old girl

A 58-year-old registered sex offender is facing five charges after he allegedly kidnapped a 15-year-old girl who was walking home from a Wichita grocery store and raped her.

The charges against Anthony Craig Seymour, of Wichita include aggravated kidnapping and rape.

The Wichita Eagle reports Seymour is accused of using a knife to force the girl into his car and raping her on Tuesday.  He made his first court appearance Thursday.

A witness to the abduction called 911.   The girl jumped out of Seymour’s car when she saw a police car in the neighborhood after the emergency call.

Seymour is in the Sedgwick County Jail on $250,000 bond. His next court date is December 5th.

He previously served just over 15 years for raping a 14-year-old girl in 2003.
