The woman complied, and drove him to the 4400 block of Forest Park Boulevard. Once she parked the car, Hampton tried to grab her purse and struggled with her as he tried to get it.Earlier this month the St. Louis Grand Jury Association awarded three men who called police in February after they heard screams from the woman who Hampton allegedly kidnapped from the Central West End in February. The witnesses saw Hampton force the victim into an abandoned building along Delmar Boulevard. Minutes later police entered the dwelling to reportedly catch Hampton in the act of raping the woman.
While they were inside the car, Hampton told her he wanted to sodomize her, she told police. The woman was able to get the attention of passersby. Hampton told her if she told anybody what he did, he would kill her, then he left the vehicle.
