Shish is Wanted for Alleged Abduction of Teenage Minor

ACP Joseph Myvett

Police are tonight looking for a suspect who reportedly abducted a teenage minor from San Ignacio on Friday and brought her to Belize City against her will.  The fifteen-year-old girl was able to escape from the custody of her abductor on Regent Street when his vehicle had to slow down in traffic.  She managed to jump out of his vehicle and run into a business establishment and subsequently made a report of the harrowing ordeal.  Police say they are actively seeking a person known to the alleged victim as Shish.  He was recently released from a charge of murder.

 

ACP Joseph Myvett, Head, National Crimes Investigation Branch

“On Friday, Belize City police visited a business on Regent Street where they met and spoke with a fifteen-year-old female minor who gave them certain information and as a result of that she was then escorted by the police to San Ignacio where she was handed over, where she met her mother and during the process she reported to police that on the said Friday, sometime after one p.m., while she was walking in the area of the San Ignacio Welcome Center, she was approached by a male person known to her as Shish, whom she’s familiar with.  He then took away her cell phone and forced her into a vehicle and drove her to Belize City.  During the journey to Belize City he attempted to sexually assault her several times.  When they reached Belize City and were in traffic on Regent Street, due to the density of traffic the vehicle had to stop and that is how she managed to make her escape and made her way to the business.  So far the suspect remains at large and we are seeking him in relation to this investigation.”

“Now two things.  She use to work for Shish, am I right?”

 

ACP Joseph Myvett

“Yes.”

 

Reporter

“Okay, so under what circumstances or under what pretense then, did he pick her up?”

 

ACP Joseph Myvett

“Well obviously she was not picked up.  She was forced into the vehicle and that is the report she gave.”
