The Matamoros kidnapping puts cartels in the cross-hairs
More politicians want a frontal attack on Mexico’s drug gangs.
A San Antonio couple was kidnapped in a home invasion while five children were left unharmed in the house, police said Wednesday morning.
Officers responded to a reported home invasion in progress on the 3100 block of Mission Bell, per a statement sent to Fox News Digital by San Antonio Police Officer Ricardo E. Guzman, who was at the scene.
The five unscathed children inside the home spoke to police, telling them that strangers broke in and forced a Hispanic man and woman in their 30s, “believed to be [their] parents,” into a white SUV, per Guzman’s statement.
