Tonight, 32 year old Eduardo Nah and his common law wife 25 year old Roxanie Cruz are back at home with family and friends. But there is no doubt that they are still recuperating from the frightful ordeal they experiment on Monday night when they were abducted by four armed masked men of Hispanic Decent.
While the couple remains traumatized, police are still viewing the surveillance tape that captured the entire abduction which played out at the couple’s home in the Village of Copper Bank in the Corozal District. The fact that the entire residence is surrounded by cameras did not deter the ruthless criminal’s from carrying out their crime which apparently was well planned out.
As we’ve reported, around 7:45 on Monday night the couple, along with Nah’s brother, 24 year old Sabino Nah arrived at Eduardo’s residence in the family’s dark grey Toyota 4 Runner. While Roxanie Cruz was closing the front gate four masked men rushed in the yard. The first to be attacked was Sabido who was pistol-whipped on the head and handcuffed. He was then forced to lie on the ground. While one of the men stayed with Sabido, the other three escorted the couple inside their residence where it is believed that two of the rooms where ransacked. Outside the residence Sabino somehow managed to escape from his attacker and ran for assistance. But by the time Sabino and a group of villagers returned to the house, his brother, sister-in-law and the four criminals were long gone in the family’s SUV.
An intensive search was conducted by Corozal and Orange Walk Police but had no results. It wasn’t until after midnight that the couple returned back home in their SUV after being released by their abductors at a cost of $15,000. When questioned by police Eduardo related that he and his common-law-wife were taken to a cane field between Progresso and San Estevan where they handed over $15,000.00 in cash to the men. Nah told police he was in possession of the substantial amount of money from a land he recently sold. Today the couple was back at the Corozal Police Station.
While we approached them for an interview we were told that they prefer to remain quiet for the time being for their own protection. CTV3 News understands that there are yet no leads into this case despite surveillance footage. Anyone with information that could lead to the kidnappers is asked to contact the nearest police station.
