Kidnapped Tania, rescued by authorities was 'unharmed'
Tania Tatta, the young girl in her twenties who was kidnapped late last night by three delinquents in the area of San Isidro, Buenos Aires province, has been rescued and returned to safety. She has been said to have been 'unharmed', but shaken up due to the incident.
Tania was taken while making her way to her friend’s house along Los Fortines street, when she was stopped by kidnappers and forced into a VW Gol Trend car. She was held captive for around three hours according to police sources.
She was rescued at around 4AM this morning after police intervened, following a 911 call informing them of the situation. According to police, a settlement was made after the girl’s father paid 10 thousand pesos as a ransom, a suggested amount by Tania herself, of five thousand pesos and one thousand dollars. This happened once the kidnappers had reached Villa Santa Rita in the Boulogne neighbourhood, where they were then in pursuit by the authorities.
While in pursuit a fight had broken out between the kidnappers, who are said to have crashed during a struggle. One of the criminals was injured, and police then took control over the situation, and the young female was finally freed in Villa Adelina.
