Kidnap Victim Asks for ‘Help Loan’ at Bank, Employees Set Off Silent Alarm
An alert Pennsylvania bank employee helped rescue a kidnapped woman on Wednesday when her captor brought her in to apply for a loan and she asked for a “help loan.”
The employee set off the bank’s silent alarm, usually used for a robbery, and police arrived and arrested 36-year-old Wilson Medina-Garcia, charging him with kidnapping, unlawful restraint, and terroristic threats, WNEP reports.
Investigators say the woman’s ordeal began on Tuesday when Medina-Garcia allegedly locked her in a bedroom, destroyed her cellphone, and threatened to kill her and her children.
