16-year-old Female Staged Bronx Kidnapping To Be With Her Boyfriend
Karol Sanchez, 16-year-old, who was kidnapped while walking with her mother in the Bronx, has been revealed that the whole thing was staged.
According to reports, the apparent kidnapping in the Bronx that sparked an Amber Alert and a citywide manhunt late Monday into Tuesday, was staged by Karol Sanchez and four accomplices. Sanchez allegedly confessed to it after being reunited with her family on Tuesday.
According to Sanchez, she staged her kidnap so she could be with her boyfriend, a 23-year-old reputed Crips gangbanger who was once arrested for murder. She also said she wasn’t happy at home, and that was another reason for staging the kidnap.
An NYPD source said:
Her mother wanted to move them back to Honduras, but she [Karol] was adamantly against it.
No charges have been filed but police are looking for four male accomplices. In the surveillance video, four men were snatching her off Bronx Street, her mother fought for her but she was pushed to the ground while the men zoomed off with Karol on Monday night. A day later, she resurfaced “trembling” in the same area where she was “kidnapped” and walked up to police, before being taken in for questioning.
The teen and her family declined to comment as they left the station house Tuesday evening.
