Top 10 Kidnappings Caught on Security Camera
It takes a special kind of evil in a person to steal a human life, adult or child. Kidnapping a person means you have no regard for their existence nor regard for the dozens of friends and family of that person. It also probably means you suffer from severe psychological issues.
Before moving on, I implore everyone reading this to also read up on surviving a kidnapping as well as kidnapping prevention.
Hearing about these sadistic crimes in the news is nothing compared to seeing actual videos of the events taking place. I work for a distributor of video surveillance systems called 2MCCTV, so, I thought it fitting to offer a list of kidnappings captured by surveillance footage. I know a lot out there who are against the increase in video surveillance, but please note that many kidnapping cases have been solved thanks to the footage obtained from security cameras, including some below.
I decided to list the below Top 10 Kidnappings Caught on Security Camera in no particular order, as I found it somewhat disturbing when trying to formulate a sort of “ranking system” for the videos. So, instead the videos are in random order.
Surveillance Video Captures Child Abduction Attempt
A grocery store’s security surveillance footage shows a woman dressed in black waiting for a mother to turn away from the cart to kidnap the baby in it. As soon as the mother turns to pick out some fruit, the woman takes the cart and walks away with it. The mother realizes someone stole the cart with the baby, and starts screaming. The woman, afraid someone will catch her, abandons the cart and the baby, and runs out of the store.
Little Girl Escapes from Alleged Kidnapper in Walmart
A second grader was with her mom at Wal-Mart, when her mom decided to grab some fruit and leave her daughter in the toy aisle to play. The young girl was playing with some toys when CCTV footage shows a man trying to abduct her. Brittany, the girl being abducted, started kicking the suspect and screaming at the top of her lungs, scaring the man off. He dropped her on the floor and ran off. The security cameras outside the store captured him getting into his car, and also captured his license plate. He was arrested almost an hour later.
Never leave your child alone at any store, that is a simple rule every good parent knows. Anyone can overhear you telling your child you will meet in a few minutes or pass by and see your child unattended, giving them the opportunity to kidnap them.
Crazy Mexican Cartel Kidnapping
This CCTV camera footage captures what authorities are saying is a drug dealer. He arrives at a corner store in his red truck. As soon as his foot hits the pavement, several cars came rolling in. They surround the store from the front, in case the drug dealer tries fleeing. Then they come at him with heavy firearms, leading him into one of the cars and kidnapping him. His body was found a few days later, shot in the head.
Child Kidnapper Caught on Security Camera at Mumbai Station
This security camera footage is unbelievable! A man disembarks the train at a station, and goes to the waiting room, where he looks for a family with children. He finds a family that is all fast asleep and sits next to them, possibly to blend in and appear as part of the family. Four minutes later, he picks up the girl beside him, and simply walks off, no questions asked.
Have someone stay awake while everyone sleeps to watch over everyone and your belongings. Always be on the lookout when traveling, as kids are very easy to lose.
Child Abduction Attempt Caught on CCTV, Teacher Saves the Day!
A security camera at a school captures a teacher walking her students towards their classroom, with her at the beginning of the line. A man is seen approaching one of the students from the end of the line, and the teacher was oblivious to his presence. Thankfully, she turns around and sees the man grabbing the girls hand and starting to walk away with her. The teacher then runs to save the child, and successfully takes her from the suspect. He retaliates, however, wanting to take the girl with him. He starts fighting with the teacher, and the young girl runs to the class, with the teacher following her soon after. Then a staff member appears, scaring off the kidnapper.
When signing your kids up for a school, make sure they have a secure perimeter, so no unauthorized people can enter school property. Also pay attention to the teacher’s methods. How does she lead the kids to and from class? Does she have an assistant to help her with the students? These are all things to keep in mind.
Kidnapping Caught on CCTV, in Delhi
Using the same tactics as the man at the Mumbai station, this man goes to an area where everyone is sleeping. Several people pass by, imposing on his task, until finally when the coast is clear, he takes the sleeping baby from the sleeping mother. This kidnapping was captured on CCTV cameras at a hospital in Delhi in 2011.
Woman caught on camera abducting a child in Rajhamundary
It was a busy day in the district government hospital in Rajhamundary, India. A woman pretends to help the mother of a child, then abducts her three year old child. Security cameras capture her proceeding to walk out of the hospital, and getting away with the child.
Never trust anyone you just met with your child at a hospital, or any other place for that matter. And always carry a picture of your child with you to show to authorities if anything happens.
Man Kidnapped in his Own Car
First, a man is captured by a security camera opening a gate. He then goes back in to bring out his car, when a black car stops, presumably to let him pass. Once he gets out of the gated area and starts parking the car outside, the black car pulls up on the opposite side of the street, somewhat in a rush. The man gets out of the car to move one of the cones, when a silver car pulls up in the middle of the street. Three men come out of that car with guns; two of them kidnap him in his own car, and the third goes to the black car and switches places with the driver. The kidnappers’ car passes by again and then flees the scene. Several people then come by to investigate what just happened.
Carlie Brucia – Abduction caught on tape – Women’s Self Defense
Carlie Brucia, an 11 year old girl from Florida, was abducted in front of a car wash. Joseph Smith, the car mechanic who abducted her, grabbed her hand and kidnapped her, killing her later. He negotiated with authorities, giving them the location of her body.
Teach your kids how to fend for themselves, tell them to scream as loud as they can, and that they should never speak to strangers.
Girl Kidnapped in front of Target
This security camera, located at the front door of a Target store, captures as unexpected kidnapping. A car pulls up at the storefront and a man emerges from it. Meanwhile, one woman is following a girl and then both the man and woman grab her and force her way towards the car. A woman passing by sees the confrontation and does nothing about it. Seconds later, a car passes by and does nothing to help her out. They struggle with the girl and finally force her into the car.
