A 17-year-old girl was reportedly abducted from her home in Port Antonio, Portland by two men who were driving a grey Toyota Probox motorcar Thursday night around 7:00 pm.
The residents alerted the police, who reacted quickly by blocking the road in an effort to capture the perpetrators. The roadblock resulted in the vehicle being intercepted by the Castleton police and the teenage girl rescued.
The police also successfully detained the driver, but the other kidnapper escaped. The driver, who is reportedly from Kingston, is in custody, but he has not yet been charged.
The police, who are withholding the arrested kidnapper’s name, are still searching for the other perpetrator.
