Missouri Man ‘Blacked Out’ During Assault

Treyvohn Covington, 26, of Independence, Missouri.

Treyvohn Covington, 26, of Independence Missouri has been charged with two counts of statutory sodomy, child molestation and burglary.


A grandmother had been traveling with her three children and stopped to stay the night with her sister in her Independence apartment.  The grandmother was sleeping in a back bedroom, and the three grand children were asleep in the living room.


During the night, one of the grand children, diagnosed as autistic, came back to the room the grandmother was sleeping in and woke her.  He was "acting excited," but could not form words to communicate to his grandmother what had happened.  She sent him back out to the living room to go back to sleep.


A few minutes later, she said she heard noises and so, got up to tell the children to be quiet.  That's when she discovered Covington on top of one of her grandchildren.  She shoved him off, and took the three children to the bathroom where she locked the door and called police.


Police responded at about 5:15 am Sunday and discovered Covington was still in the living room, naked from the waist down.


In an interview with police, FoxKC reports that he stated he had been with his friends drinking and blacked out. He stated the last thing he remembers is taking a shot of Hennessey in a car on the way home from the club. The next thing he remembered was waking up in jail and did not have any recollection of what happened.
