Wilson Ramos was rescued late last night two days after being kidnapped by armed men two days earlier.Venezuelan police commandos stormed the location where Ramos was being held in what is being described as a “flurry of gunfire.” Five kidnappers were arrested.
Ramos spoke about the ordeal:
“I don’t know who those people were. I know they’re Colombians by their accent…Three guys grabbed me there in front of my house, they took me to another SUV and from there they took me into the mountains…They simply told me to cooperate, that they were going to ask for a ton of cash for me…They put me in a room with a bed. I was lying there…It was hard for me to think about, if I was going to get out alive first of all … about how my family, my mother were.”
Shortly after being rescued, Ramos was reunited with his family.
