Kansas City, MO —Kansas City authorities have arrested and charged 18-year-old Anthony King with first-degree robbery, armed criminal action and unlawful possession of a firearm in connection with the disappearance of a 15-year-old female that led to an Amber Alert last week. 

On Saturday, Kansas City police located the teen, Brajaean Sledge, who was uninjured.

Charges filed in case that led to an Ambert Alert being issued.

Police said Monday they took King into custody.

King was a person of interest in several crimes, including the shooting of Sledge’s grandfather Thursday night.

According to police, Sledge disappeared with King that same night.

Sledge’s grandfather is still recovering in a nearby hospital with serious injuries.

The forecast for today will be very similar to yesterday: cooler, hazy, and sunny. The hazy sky is a result of the wild fires out to the west of us. Tonight should be cool as well with lows in the lower 60s and calm winds. Dry and sunny conditions continue into next week as temperatures stay seasonal. Highs look to stay in the 80s until midweek and the humidity will be moderate, feeling a lot more comfortable than last week.
