Corozal Junior College Lecturer Targeted for Kidnapping

Angela Villanueva

There is an alarming report coming out of Corozal Town tonight, where news of a foiled abduction has spread like wildfire.  The victim of the thwarted kidnapping has been identified as Angela Villanueva, a part-time instructor at the Corozal Junior College.  It is reported that shortly before eight o’clock on Wednesday night, Villanueva was accosted by an unknown assailant who pounced on her just outside of the school compound.  News Five understands that the marketing instructor was about to enter her vehicle when the attacker made his move.  While we are unable to corroborate certain details of the harrowing incident, we are being told that Villanueva was bound at the wrists and was in the process of being placed inside a vehicle when she reportedly sounded the alarm on what has happening.  Information continues to trickle into our newsroom; however, we can confirm that the management and staff of the tertiary institution held an emergency meeting earlier today to address security concerns.   This morning, Assistant Commissioner of Police Joseph Myvett told the media that despite responding to the scene on Wednesday night, Corozal police are yet to receive a statement from Villanueva.

 

ACP Joseph Myvett, Head, National Crimes Investigation Branch

“We did receive some information that sometime yesterday evening around 7:45 p.m., a teacher leaving the Corozal Community College was attacked by a male person; however, no official report has yet been made.  So this matter remains under investigation.”

“Okay, but the attempted or the person who was the target of the kidnapper hasn’t or did not receive any injuries that required hospitalization?”

 

ACP Joseph Myvett

“Not that we know of.”

    I think you should have tried to interview me so you can get the correct information. As per an official report I have already given one so I don’t know why they keep saying I havent.
