California. Three men who had a teenage girl kidnapped were arrested by agents of the San José Police Department because the girl was able to send a message of help to her friends and then to the authorities to capture one of the criminals who already planned to flee when Snapchat gave them away.
In a press release, the San José Police explained that on Tuesday morning agents of the Sexual Abuse Investigation Unit arrested Albert Thomas Vásquez, who held the 14-year-old girl captive in a room of a San Jose city motel.
In the narrative of the facts, the police said that the teenager met Vasquez, 55, very early Tuesday at an unspecified place in the city of Capitola, which is part of the conurbation area of San José.
Apparently, the subject is a drug salesman.
Vasquez gave the stunned teenager who was stunned for a while.
Unable to load the young woman, Vásquez called two other men identified by the authorities as Antonio Quirino Salvador and Hediberto González Avarenga, to help him move the stunned teenager and put her in her vehicle.
When the child was in the car, Vasquez sexually assaulted her.
After traveling several miles, the men took the teenager, who was not identified by the police to protect her, to an E-Z 8 motel in the city of San José.
Between the three she was transferred to a room on the second floor of the motel, where Vásquez sexually assaulted her for a second time in less than two hours.
Subsequently, Antonio Quirino Salvador, 34, and Hediberto González Avarenga, 31, withdrew from the hotel room located at 1550 First First Street.
The authorities revealed that in an oversight of Albert Thomas Vásquez, the young woman was able to send a message to her friends through her cell phone using the Snapchat application.
In the message he informed them that he had been kidnapped, but that he did not know where he was.
His friends determined his location through the Snapchat application and called the emergency number 911 to report the kidnapping.
San Jose Police officers set up an operation around the hotel.
It was just after 11.00 in the morning when they called the room where they found Vasquez about to leave the room, and the teenager inside.
After Snapchat gave them away, Albert Thomas Vasquez was immediately arrested on charges of kidnapping, rape, deprivation of liberty and poisoning with a controlled substance to a teenager.
