MCALLEN, Texas - MCALLEN, Texas (AP) - Mexican law enforcement authorities have secured the release of a 27-year-old American woman kidnapped on June 1.
The McAllen Monitor reports Saturday that the woman told authorities she had been tied up for eight days. A Tamaulipas state government news release says the unidentified woman was rescued when kidnappers waited for ransom money outside a mall in the border town of Reynosa.
Police say they have arrested seven people in connection with the abduction.
Four people were arrested during the foiled ransom exchange. The news release says two other men and a 14-year-old girl were arrested on suspicion they told kidnappers the location of law enforcement authorities. The girl is also suspected of delivering food to the homes where the American woman was held.
