This Sex Trafficking Is Becoming A Really Bad Problem! 16 Yo Girl Kidnapped In The Bx


Well-Known Member
I got an amber alert on my phone and looked at the news....

A 16-year-old girl was kidnapped in front of her horrified mother as the two walked down a street in the Bronx late Monday, police said.

Video released by the NYPD on Tuesday shows the moment Karol Sanchez was snatched off the sidewalk by two men, who jumped out of a beige sedan that pulled up just before 11:30 p.m.

The teen and her mother were walking down Eagle Avenue near East 156th Street in Melrose with their umbrellas up at the time, police said.

The duo grabbed the teen and pushed her mom, 36, to the ground as she desperately tried to hold onto the girl, according to police and video.

The men fled in the car, which police said had two other men inside, down East 156th Street.

The victim is approximately 5 feet 5 and 150 pounds with short black hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing a short dark blue jacket, white sweater, blue jeans and black sneakers.

Police described the suspects as four adult males in their 20s, with “dark complexions” and wearing dark clothing.

Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s CrimeStoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477), or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website at www.NYPDCrimeStoppers.com, or on Twitter @NYPDTips.


Sidestepping the "lynch mob"
To those of us living in NC and GA, abductions of young women and teens have been beyond a crisis for a couple of years now, esp minorities.

It's unfortunate when people only start to care when things hit closer to home; but I hope they find this young lady!

Sex trafficking is an epidemic, esp among young blacks... mainly, I believe, they're being abducted for organ harvesting as well...but that's another story

It isn't just men. Traffickers have women working for them to lure young girls. I've seen the stories....

We are in a CRISIS.
True.... there are always female accomplices.

However.... at the end of the day, it boils down to the deviant sexual appetites of men who drive the sex trafficking trade.

That’s why I am always leery of mainstream society accepting and pushing sexual mores all in the name of being free and accepting.

Men’s sexual desires are usually the driving force in these things.

I'm glad she's ok. I was so scared for her.

Now, I have some conspiracy stuff running around in my mind. I'll wait though.

I don't think the cameras should've been all up in her face like that... that was my child, the cameras were getting whacked...the media sometimes can be so insensitive. That girl looks traumatized.. but I'm glad she's been found and is back with her family!

FOUND! Thank God and she looks extremely traumatized. I feel sick thinking of what else these monsters may have done to this poor girl!

The 16-year-old girl who appeared to have been abducted from a Bronx streetin front of her horrified mother has been found — after walking up to a police car at the intersection where she vanished, cops and witnesses said Tuesday.

Police — who had characterized the disappearance as a kidnapping — are now questioning Karol Sanchez to sort out what really happened, according to cops.

A “trembling” Sanchez approached a police car near Eagle Avenue and East 156th Street in Melrose around 2:15 p.m., and was escorted into the vehicle by cops, said two witnesses — who were looking at a missing poster for the teen when they saw her return.

“We were looking at the picture saying, ‘I hope she’s OK,’ and she walked right up,” said Akash Singh, 29. “She was trembling while she was walking. She just looked really scared. She put her hands on her knees and she started talking to the cops. They jumped out of the car and put her in.”

Added witness Zani Koxha, “I can’t believe it. I’m totally shocked. She was trembling and she looked like she was in deep shock.”

Sanchez was walking with her 36-year-old mom near the same intersection around 11:20 p.m. Monday when two men hopped out of a beige sedan, grabbed the teen and forced her into the car, harrowing surveillance video shows.

The mom tried to fight off the men, but was shoved to the ground as the car peeled off, police said.

Investigators have not immediately released a motive for the apparent abduction — which prompted an Amber Alert — but the NYPD’s 40th Precinct confirmed in a tweet that Karol had been found.

Police sources said the teen’s mom was planning to relocate them back to her native Honduras over Karol’s objections, and that investigators were exploring whether that played into the disappearance.

Sanchez was speaking with police at the 40th Precinct stationhouse Tuesday afternoon to sort out whether the incident was a kidnapping at all, cops said.

The bolded statement in the last update caught my attention...so now, I don't know how I feel about this story... In looking at the vid a few times, it seems the girl had responded to the men first, as if someone called her by name but I could be wrong.

I'm still glad the ordeal is over...let the police figure it all out. Sex trafficking and abductions shouldn't be taken lightly.

Why you say this? Did I miss something?
