According to reports made by Por Esto Newspaper, at around 9:00 pm on Saturday, local police authorities were on mobile patrol when their attention was drawn to a car in a dark area.

A couple inside the car seemed to be having an altercation and so police went to investigate.

The driver of the vehicle who identified himself as Miguel Angel Manzanero Cocom, said that nothing was wrong, however, the female on the passenger seat shouted that she was being verbally and physically abused.

Police authorities reportedly took them out of the car and questioned the girl separately and that is when the female minor told police she had been kidnapped Cocom almost 7 months ago and was being abused.

Mexican police said that Cocom will be faced with several charges including human trafficking while the 16 year old female minor will be sent back to Belize.

However, according to Corozal Police authorities, up to the time of this newscast, the Mexican authorities had not made contact with them.
