Traffic stop leads to kidnapping charges - NBC News

Pasadena, Texas (KPRC) Two people are charged with aggravated kidnapping after police say they kidnapped a woman, bound her with duct tape and forced her into the trunk of a car before getting into a police chase in Pasadena.

Sarah Nicole Cruz and Alexander Salas were both in jail as of Wednesday, according to online court records filed after the incident, which happened May 31.

A Pasadena police officer noticed expired registration on the car Salas was driving early in the morning on May 31.

The officer pulled the vehicle over and heard screaming coming from the trunk.

“You don’t come across these situations on a daily basis but we are very grateful that it turned out the way it did,” Ramirez said.

Police say Salas told them he had kidnapped his ex-girlfriend because he wanted to scare her.
