QUANG NINH — Police in northern Quang Ninh Province yesterday rescued a 21-year-old woman from kidnappers who had forced her into prostitution.
Four suspected kidnappers were arrested by police officers.
On the previous day, police received a call from the woman's mother in central Nghe An Province, asking for help to rescue her daughter. The 21-year-old had managed to send her mother a text message saying that she had been kidnapped on Monday and forced to work as a prostitute.
Police found the girl after checking on guest houses in the area. The girl told police she fell unconscious after hanging out with some friends of her boyfriend on Monday in Hai Phong City, before waking up 30km away in Quang Ninh Province. She said she was forced by a pimp and his young accomplices to be a prostitute. — VNS
