Minor female intercepted in Uganda; suspect arrested!
A minor girl was sent to the market by her mother to buy packing bags. Along the way, she met a stranger who deceived her, promising that he knew a better place where she could purchase the bags at a cheaper price. The young girl trusted him and agreed to follow him to this other shop. However, instead of taking her to buy the packing bags as promised, the suspect took her to Kampala.
Meanwhile, the young girl’s parents waited for their daughter to return from the market. Growing more concerned with each passing hour, the parents finally reported her disappearance to the Gulu Police Station in northern Uganda. The Gulu Police informed the Riverside Police about the missing child and the suspected trafficker. Riverside Police then collaborated with our global partner on the matter.
Later that same day, our local partner was monitoring at a transit station, and from a distance, they could observe all the buses arriving from Gulu. Thankfully, they spotted the young girl getting off a bus, and they immediately informed the police. The suspected trafficker was promptly arrested and taken to the police station for further questioning. Our partners intercepted the girl and helped reunite her with her parents.
