KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – An embattled Kansas City, Missouri, jail has been sued by a man alleging he was raped by another inmate, and a guard did nothing to help.

In fact, the lawsuit filed May 9 alleges that the female guard at the Jackson County Detention Center gave cocaine to the man assaulting Ryan Dumas during the attack in September.

A county spokeswoman on Monday did not immediately respond to messages seeking comment.

Last month, a federal indictment accused four former corrections officers at the jail of assaulting a shackled inmate. In another lawsuit, two former inmates alleged that sewage often backed up in their cells, but jail staff refused to do anything about it.
