SAMARA, September 6 (Itar-Tass) — Police in Samara have liberated a 14-year-old girl kidnapped by two residents of Bashkiria.
The incident took place in the town of Otradnoye in the Samara region, the press service of the regional department of the Russian Interior Ministry reported on Thursday. Two men from Bashkiria offered two schoolgirls, aged 13 and 14, whom they saw on the street to give them a lift in their car. The girls got into the car but the driver started taking them in a different direction. They refused to let the girls go. The schoolgirls put up resistance and jumped out of the car when it slowed down. But only one schoolgirl managed to escape the abductors. They captured her 14-year-old friend and took her out of town in an unknown direction.
It took police several hours to find the girl. A car similar to the one used by the kidnappers was stopped in the Kinel-Cherkassky district of the Samara region. The driver and his friends were arrested. The girl was sent to hospital for medical examination. She’s receiving psychological assistance at the moment.
A criminal lawsuit has been filed against the two me on abduction charges. An investigation is under way.
