At about 11:30 p.m. on Monday, a teenage girl was kidnapped by a group of four men along a street in the Melrose section of the Bronx. The incident was caught on camera but the men involved could not be easily identified. The surveillance video released by the NYPD showed two men jumping out of a car and grabbing the girl who has been identified as Karol Sanchez.
She was abducted as she walked with her mom who tried to fight back but was pushed away as Sanchez was forced into the car with two other men inside. All the men were reportedly wearing dark clothing. Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477)
