BREAKING: Kidnap victim rescued by police, unharmed in Caura


    Kidnap victim Maria Dass has been safely rescued by police around 8:30pm this evening at a location in Caura.

    The woman was snatched by three men at the UWI St Augustine Campus as she attempted to enter her vehicle, near to the UWI north gate earlier today.

    The men forced her into a silver Nissan Tiida vehicle around 3:38pm, with the vehicle’s license plate later being discovered to be bogus.

    Police issued a media release moments ago stating that two suspects have been held; one wearing a police jacket and the other wearing camouflage gear.

    The TTPS says Police Commissioner Gary Griffith was actively involved and co-ordinated the operations when the joint team intercepted the suspects and rescued Ms Dass unharmed.

    The release also stated that upon learning of her kidnapping, all operational and intelligence units were activated.

    It adds that working alongside the National Operations Command Centre, police were able to pin point the location of the victim.

    The Top Cop is also said to be currently accompanying the victim to seek medical attention.

    Meanwhile UWI Campus Principal Professor Brian Copeland has expressed his deep concern on behalf of the Campus Community.

    He says when incidents of crime occur on campus, concern for the victim is paramount importance to the University.

    He assures that the UWI senior administration team has activated its systems to ensure that all necessary support is made available by the Campus to the persons affected.
