Kidnapping in Fort Worth

More attempted kidnappings in Fort Worth.

FORT WORTH -- Two men were arrested early Saturday after police said they tried to kidnap a woman near Texas Christian University, and authorities believe that the men may be responsible for other attempted kidnappings in the TCU area.

Jose Alberto Chavollo, 19, was in the Mansfield Jail on Monday afternoon facing charges of aggravated kidnapping, evading arrest and possession of a controlled substance. His bail was set at $31,000.
$31k seems a bit light for kidnapping, even if the goblin is only 19. What about goblin #2?

Victor Garcia, 23, remained in the Mansfield Jail on Monday on an immigration hold. He was also facing a charge of aggravated kidnapping.
Just another hard working illegal caught up in the American criminal justice system.

According to the woman and witnesses, she and some friends were walking east in the 2900 block of West Berry Street when they decided to cut through a parking lot near the 3100 block of Greene Avenue. The woman was walking ahead of her friends when she rounded a corner and was out of view, according to the news release.

When the woman's friends turned the corner, they saw her on the ground and a man on top of her, striking her in the head. The friends confronted the man, who fled in a black Chevrolet Tahoe occupied by another man.

The witnesses got the license plate number and gave it to police.
Once again, confronting the goblin resulted in a positive ending to this story.

These are not the only kidnappers in Fort Worth. A week or so ago I commented on this incident where a young lady fended off another kidnapper in broad daylight. Serial rapists (yes plural) and kidnappers in the Metroplex.

Ladies, it is a dangerous world out there, learn to protect yourselves.
