LAFAYETTE COUNTY, Mo. — A man accused of kidnapping, raping and assaulting two women along with two other men is due in a Lafayette County courtroom Wednesday.
Court records show that Luis Angel Sierra-Vallina, Alain Gaspar Camarillo-Linan and Jaciel Acalda Mendez-Morales allegedly kidnapped the two women in Mexico and smuggled them across the U.S.-Mexico border. They were rescued by Higginsville Police at the Super 8 in Higginsville April 26 after a tip was received from the Department of Homeland Security.
The women told investigators they had been raped and assaulted by the three men on more than one occasion. In addition, the victims allege their captors demanded ransom from their families to secure their safe return.
All three men are charged with multiple felonies. Sierra-Vallina and Camarillo-Linan are held on $750,000 cash only bond, while Mendez-Morales had bond set at $500,000.
Sierra-Vallina is scheduled to appear before a judge in Lafayette County at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday.
