Cancun kidnapping: young tourist escapes from his captors in Cancun
A young man, who claimed to be a tourist, managed to escape a couple of kidnappers and was found in a convenience store.
According to an informative card provided by the authorities, the subject related that he managed to escape from his captors, identifying them as Colombians. This happened when he was being transferred, allegedly from one safe house to another.
As he said he was on board a luxury van when he was released at the height of region 215 of Cancun. According to the grievant's account, he arrived in Cancún from Mexico City about a week ago.
However, he said that when he was moving to an amusement park he was intercepted by a duo of Colombians, who immediately faked him and forced him into a black Suburban van.
After they managed to subdue him, they transferred him to a safe house, where they kept him for more than a week. In the early hours of this morning, the alleged kidnappers put their victim back in a van and began to transfer him, apparently, to another safe house.
In his testimony, the tourist recounted that he took advantage of oversight to jump out of the motor unit and immediately ran to a convenience store located in region 215, where he requested support from the police forces.
The report indicated that the officers arrived in a matter of minutes and, after learning of the incident, took the victim to the Attorney General's Office for a statement.
Meanwhile, the elements of the police force set up a search operation in the area without any detainees being reported so far.
