Kidnapping of Teenager in the Bronx Was Staged, Law Enforcement Source Says


Police were called, picked her up and questioned her, that source said.

Sources told CBS that16-year-old Karol Sanchez confessed to staging the attack after authorities returned her to her family.

The teen believed to have been kidnapped and dragged into a auto in front of her mom in the Bronx admitted to cops Tuesday that she staged the whole incident, according to law enforcement sources. The New York Post added that Sanchez's boyfriend may have been involved.

At this time, an investigation into the incident remains ongoing and it is not clear if Sanchez will face charges.

"She is a very happy, calm person".

"She was shaken up, she was bending over, grabbing her knees, and discussing with the police", said Zani Koxha, a witness. But felony assaults increased from eight in 2018 to 13 so far this year, according to police data.

A beige four-door sedan pulled up beside Karol Sanchez and her mother as they were walking down Eagle Avenue, near East 156th Street.

"The child was taken under circumstances that lead police to believe that they are in imminent danger of serious harm and/or death", the alert says.

The NYPD's 40th Precinct cheered Karol's return when the news was announced Tuesday.

Sanchez allegedly devised the hoax because of a hard relationship with her mother, a police official told The New York Times.

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio urged the public to come forward with any information that could help find the teenager.

The mother was not injured and refused medical treatment from emergency services.
