Latest Venezuelan Police Items
The kidnapping ordeal of Washington Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos ended after two days when Venezuelan police commandos swooped in to rescue him in a flurry of gunfire and arrested four alleged abductors.
Nationals' catcher Wilson Ramos was lying in a bed in a house in Montalban, Carabobo, Friday night, trying to think, trying to sleep — trying not to wonder how much longer he might live or how his family was doing in the wake of his kidnapping.
The clock continued to tick Friday as the investigation into the kidnapping of Washington Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos advanced, according to authorities. But Venezuelan police were forced to issue a second assurance that Ramos was alive as there remained no contact between the kidnappers and Ramos' family, who spent yet another day doing their best to "keep the faith."
Venezuelan police confirmed Wilson Ramos still was alive Thursday, one day after the Washington Nationals catcher was kidnapped from his home in Valencia, Venezuela.
