16 year old Karol Sanchez from the Bronx was , so mad at her mom for moving back to Honduras that she staged her own kidnapping!
Blurry video of the incident showed the very Jussie Smollett wish event go down in the Melrose section of the Bronx around 11:30 p.m. on Monday! A group of men grabbed Sanchez , andpushed the mom to the ground.
Once they became aware of the surveillance video the NYPD put out an Amber Alert and flooded the neighborhood with missing posters.
On Tuesday, everyone was happy to hear that Karol was brought back to safety. But when Sanchez suddenly showed back up at the scene and turned herself into police in The Bronx, stunned people on the street watched in disbelief.
“We was at the pole over there, looking at her picture, and we walked up the block, she was crossing the street to the cop car, and I was like ‘Yo, that’s her right there,’” said witness Tommy Feliciano, according to CBS2. “She was shaken up,” added another witness, Zani Koxha. “She was bending over, grabbing her knees, and discussing with the police. And that’s when they took her into the parking garage for questioning.”
Sanchez was taken down to the 40th Precinct station house, & she admitted to staging the whole thing with four accomplices in an attempt to run away from her family.
Now, the NYPD wants to talk to all of the parties involved before deciding who to charge, if anyone.
