By Zoila Palma: According to reports, this morning, three young female students from El Progresso/ 7 Miles Village in the Cayo District were heading to school when two men in a vehicle met them.
The men reportedly tied up the children and placed them in the vehicle and proceeded to drive off.
When the community was informed of the occurrence, they set chase after the vehicle and the children managed to jump out of the moving vehicle.
The parents of the children went to San Ignacio Police Station to report it to the authorities. However, police reportedly told them that they did not have a vehicle at the time to go to the village and the girls would need to make their own reports.
Commander of Professional Standards Branch, Chester Williams then informed the public that he had contacted Sr. Supt. Richard Rosado of San Ignacio and that he and his team were on their way to the village.
BBN understands that the parents are now making their formal reports at the San Ignacio Police Station.
