Surveillance camera captures abduction of Chetumal man

Chetumal, Q.R. —  Private video surveillance captured the abduction of a man from his home in Chetumal. Three armed men jumped out of a car seconds after the man closed the door of his car and turned to enter his house.

Video captured the Sunday afternoon abduction as the three younger men forcefully grabbed him as he tried to enter his home. They forced him out to the street and into an open back door of a car before speeding off.

The man has since been identified as 50-year-old Cipriano Torres Lopez, a Chetumal resident. Local reports say the three armed men belonged to Caborca Cartel. On Monday afternoon, the FGE of Quintana Roo published a missing persons report on the man.
