(KTEM) Police in Cisco, Texas say a sex trafficking victim was able to jump from a truck and escape her captors Wednesday night, but that another woman who was in the truck may still be in danger.
According to a news briefing from the Cisco Police Department, emergency responders were called to an area of I-20 near a truck stop around 9 PM Wednesday, August 26. A caller had reported that a woman was seriously injured.
The woman told police she’d been kidnapped in El Paso, and that she’d hurt herself jumping from an 18-wheeler in which she’d been held captive since. She was taken to a local hospital for treatment. Police did not release her identity or age, but said crisis workers are assisting her with care and placement.
