Woman Kidnapped At Gunpoint At Texas’ Border With Mexico

The border can be a dangerous place. You have to wonder what they had planned for the woman. Mexican sex trafficking organizations make a lot of money by forcing women into prostitution & have been known to abduct their victims.

“EDINBURG, Texas – Authorities arrested two men in connection with the Christmas Day kidnapping of a woman at an international port of entry parking lot in Texas.

The kidnapping took place Christmas Day in the parking lot of the Progresso Port of Entry, just north of the Mexican border city of Nuevo Progreso. The port services a large number of visitors on a regular basis who cross into Mexico for lower-priced prescription medicines and treatments. According to the Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office, a group of women were in the lot when one began an argument with her boyfriend. Two men later identified as 29-Jesus Daniel Lugo Roman and 39-year-old Jose Brian Illas Hernandez recorded the incident.

The kidnapping victim confronted the two men and demanded they delete the footage. Lugo drew a pistol and forced the female into his vehicle, according to the sheriff’s office. The two men allegedly took the woman to an apartment in San Juan, Texas. After the alleged kidnapping, the victim’s boyfriend called local police who were able to rescue the woman and arrest the two suspects.

On Thursday, the pair went before Justice of the Peace Gilberto Saenz who formally charged each of the men with one count of aggravated kidnapping and set their bonds at $100,000.”

KGRV 5 reports:

“The kidnapped woman told Hidalgo County sheriff’s deputies she was forced into a Mercedes Benz SUV after they located her. The suspects and victim were inside when they were found. A gun was recovered from the vehicle.

Lugo and Hernandez were arrested and sent to jail. According to court documents, they told the investigators they did not know the victim.”

The DOJ issued a press release on the Mexican “Rendon-Reyes” sex trafficking organization earlier this year:

“In some instances, they forcibly abducted the victims, and on one occasion, a victim’s child. Members of the Organization frequently arranged for others to smuggle the victims across the border and into the United States. Once in the United States, members of the Organization utilized different methods to force the victims to engage in prostitution, including severe and repeated beatings, sexual assaults, forced abortions, threats to the victims, their families and children, and psychological harm. Members of the Organization forced the victims to perform as many as 45 sex acts a night and took all of the prostitution proceeds, funneling the money back to Mexico.”
