NEW YORK — A 16-year-old girl has been located after security video showed men grabbing her and forcing her into a car, the New York Police Department said Tuesday.

“We have a victory today! Karol has been found!!!” the NYPD’s 40th Precinct said on Twitter in announcing that Karol Sanchez had been found.

The blurry, black and white video captured a brief struggle as two men jumped out of a car and forced the teenager inside.

The girl’s mother was shown grappling with the men then being pushed to the ground. She chased after the car as it drove away.

The incident was reported at around 11:30 p.m. Monday. An Amber Alert was issued Tuesday.

Police said four men in total were believed to be involved in the apparent abduction, including two who stayed in the car.
