Colusa Boy Kidnapped for Making Another Child Cry

A husband and wife are in custody after kidnapping a 13 year old boy for making their child cry.

Rebecca Carranza-Molina , age 44,and Jose Alfred Molina, age 56, both of Colusa, were arrested shortly after 6:00 p.m. Friday by Colusa Police on charges of kidnapping, false imprisonment and child cruelty following a report they kidnapped a 13 year old Colusa boy from a street corner following an altercation on the Sacramento River at Colusa’s Memorial Grove Park.

Witnesses reported they were with the victim on a sandbar on the Sacramento River, at the base of the city park.

Carranza-Molina was nearby with her two small children.

One of the children was inadvertently hurt when playing with the victim, causing the child to cry.

Carranza-Molina became angry and attacked the victim, striking him several times and taking his bicycle from him.

The victim recovered his bike and left with the witnesses.

Carranza­ Molina left also, going home and picking up her husband.

The wife and husband then drove back to the area of the park and found the victim walking on 8th Street near Main Street.

They chased the victim to 7th and Market Streets at which point they grabbed him and forced them into their minivan.

One of the witnesses called police, using their cell phone.

The suspects drove the victim to their home in the 400 block of 14th Street and forced him into the house and kept him there until he apologized for making their child cry.

Officers from the Colusa Police Department and Colusa County Sheriff’s Department arrived at the suspects’ home as the victim was apologizing.

The victim sustained only minor scratches and bruising.

He was released to his grandparents.

Carranza-Molina and Molina were booked into the Colusa County Jail.  Bail for each was set at $100,000.
