Kansas City Cops Arrest Lovey R. Love On Underage Sex Charge, Records Show

A man named Lovey R. Love has been arrested for statutory rape after the mother of a 16-year-old Kansas City girl discovered the 23-year-old suspect having sex with her daughter.

According to cops, the woman found Love in her daughter’s bedroom around 11 AM Wednesday. She told Kansas City Police Department officers that, in response, she retrieved a kitchen knife. Love, however, fled to a bathroom, where he remained until police arrived.

Love, seen in the above mug shot, was arrested and booked into the Johnson County jail for second-degree statutory rape, a felony for which he is being held in lieu of $50,000 bond. A Missouri judge has ordered Love to have no contact with the teen.

While Love claimed he thought the girl was over 18, her mother told police that she had previously apprised him that she was only 16.

The defendant was arraigned this morning in Circuit Court.
