Police released security camera video of the SUV that two suspects were driving in the case of an 11-year-old mentally disabled girl who was taken from the sidewalk as she walked home, then sexually assaulted for hours. Miami Police spokeswoman Officer Kenia Reyes and spokesman Sgt. Freddie Cruz spoke about the case.
An 11-year-old mentally disabled girl was taken from the sidewalk as she walked home, then sexually assaulted for hours. Police have new leads in the June 6 incident.
Security camera video from a nearby home captured the vehicle the two suspects, a man and a woman, were driving. That video was digitally enhanced by the FBI.
The video shows a silver or grey SUV turn right onto NW 15th Avenue from NW 50th Street. It pulls to a stop. Moments later you see the little legs and feet of the little girl stop and go back to the side of the car.
"He did all the talking, and he told her to come over to the vehicle. Something was said and we're not sure what made her get into that vehicle," said Sgt. Freddie Gutierrez of the Miami Police.
Moments later the car drives off on 15th Avenue. The whole abduction took less than two minutes. The victim was taken to an undisclosed abandoned home and assaulted. The suspects dropped her off in the same Allapatah neighborhood where they abducted her.
The victim in this case had the presence of mind to notice the woman wore an index finger ring and thumb ring which police released in sketches. The man had tattoos on his arms – possiblly of an eagle.
Gutierrez says police need the public's help, "We need someone to come forward and help us out and put this puzzle together and put these two animals behind bars."
