California postal worker saves girl from human trafficking

Sacramento postal carrier discovered a 16-year-old girl who had escaped from the sex traffickers.

A California girl who claims that she is trapped in a world of prostitution until recently credits to a South Sacramento postal worker with her rescue.

In June, Ivan Crisostomo, a proof of the carrier, heard a “desperate cry” comes from behind a tree. When he looked around, he saw the 16-year-old Crystal Allen.

“She started pointing to her arm, saying: ‘They put things in me. They put things in me. They come to me,'” Crisostomo recalled Allen, who told him, according to FOX 40.

She told Crisostomo that she was able to escape her kidnappers by jumping out of the car as they drive through a neighborhood, managing to grab a mobile phone on her way.

Crisostomo and All used the phone to call the teen’s mother, Stacy Ohman. Officials with the Sacramento Sheriff’s Department were also called.

The postal worker said he stayed with the 16-year-old until the authorities came to take her to the hospital. She is now home with her family, CBS13 reported.

Allen was allegedly “drugged, abused and misused” for three months before they escaped, the news station reported.

“I cried the whole time and prayed that I would get to be with my mother again,” Allen said.

It is currently not clear from whom Allen’s alleged kidnappers are or how they got involved with them.

The teenager and Crisostomo were reunited on Thursday, where she thanked him for helping her.

“Ivan is a hero for saving me,” Allen told FOX 40. “Even though he doesn’t think.”
