Kansas City police are working to determine if a man arrested in the assault of three people at a motel is connected to a triple homicide in another part of the city.
Police say the man was arrested shortly before midnight as he walked along an interstate in north Kansas City. His arrest occurred about two miles from a motel where three people had been assaulted Tuesday afternoon. The victims of the assault were not seriously injured.
Investigators have not positively linked the man to a shooting in a south Kansas City neighborhood earlier Tuesday that left three dead and two wounded. They say in a news release that a vehicle taken from that homicide scene was found within blocks of the motel where the assaults occurred.
