Shocking video was released on Tuesday showing a mother and her 16-year-old daughter walking on the sidewalk together in the Bronx when a sedan drove up, two men jumped out and grabbed the daughter as the mother attempted to keep the girl from being taken. She was unsuccessful.
Take a look at the shocking and horrifying video.
The New York Post reported:
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, prompting an Amber Alert, 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.
Shaniya Williams witnessed what took place after.
“She was out here screaming, ‘Oh my God, my daughter, my daughter, my daughter!’” said Williams, who is a mother of four who was on her way to work Monday night.
“She was just hysterical crying. I just kept trying to talk to her,” said Williams. “She said she was looking for her.”
Ms. Sanchez ran into a local deli screaming, “Oh my God! Help help help! They took her, oh my God, help me!”
The man behind the counter couldn’t understand who had been taken.
Fortunately, the mother was able to contact police and an Amber Alert was issued for her daughter on Tuesday morning.
Later on Tuesday afternoon, good news came to light that Sanchez had been found unharmed.
The New York Times reported:
The police said on Tuesday afternoon that they had found Ms. Sanchez, unharmed.
The details of what happened remained unclear, but the police said she was found on the same block where she had been abducted. On Tuesday afternoon, Ms. Sanchez was being questioned by officers from the 40th Precinct, according to the police.
The brazenness of these men to do this while the girl was walking with her mother indicates that they need to be put down like sick animals. If New York was not such a Communist state in attacking the rights of the people to keep and bear arms, this mother or someone close by could have just put an end to these men’s crime spree for good and saved this young girl and her mother from a traumatic experience.
