Crime Tracker: Woman Uses Home Security System To Rescue Kidnapped Teen

Posted: Updated:

KHQ.COM - A California woman used her home security system to rescue a teenage girl held at knife point inside her vehicle. The man snuck into the girl's car at a shopping center and hid in her backseat; eventually surprising the girl, holding a knife to her body and demanding she drive to a remote location.  

The girl escaped and ran for help. Star Santa Cruz was outside when the 16-year-old girl ran up screaming. The woman pulled the girl inside her home, they ran upstairs, and Santa Cruz set off the panic button. Police arrived on scene and were able to link a fingerprint inside the girl's car to 23-year-old Aron Roy. He's charged with six felonies, including kidnapping.  

The incident serves as a good reminder when it comes to safety. Law officers recommend scanning the backseat through the window whenever you get into your vehicle in a public place. They also say victims should do their best to avoid being taken to a second location by their captors. The chance of rescue dramatically decreases when kidnap victims are taken to that second location. This California incident proves home security systems are effective when we know how to sufficiently use and activate them. And finally, this incident ended the best way it possibly could have thanks to the quick thinking of this teenage girl and an alert homeowner.
