(Scroll down for video) A rapist asked his victim to give him time to drink several glasses of beer before reporting him to police.

45-year-old Russell L. Burd of Independence, Missouri, knocked on his neighbor’s door at 4:00 a.m.

When she opened the door, Burd, who appeared to be drunk and upset, forced his way inside.

The woman told police that Burd hit and kicked her, handcuffed her and took her to the bedroom. While she was trying to resist, the ruckus caused the victim’s 3-year-old son to wake up.

According to the police report, Burd warned the mother to “pretend to enjoy the rape or he will kill her in front of her son.”

After raping the woman, as Burd got ready to leave the victim’s home, he told her to wait before contacting the police “so I can down a couple beers before I go to jail,” police said.
