Girl Kidnapped in front of Her Mother in New York Returns Home Safe


Authorities said the 16-year-old girl who was kidnapped Monday night in New York has returned home safe.

Karol Sanchez was kidnapped at around 11:20 p.m. along Eagle Avenue near East 156th Street as she walked with her mother.

In a surveillance video released by the NYPD, two men are seen jumping out of a beige 4-door sedan and grabbing Sanchez.

Her mother tries to fight back but is pushed away by one man as her daughter is forced into the car with two other men inside.

The car flees the scene with the four men and the victim.

Authorities said on Tuesday, Sanchez walked up to her relative’s apartment building in the Bronx. She then met with the police.

There were no details released about the girl’s safe return.
