Washington Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos has been kidnapped from his native Venezuela. The 24-year old is spending winter in Venezuela to play with the Tigres de Aragua.
According to the Washington Post: Four people, armed, went into Ramos’s family’s house Wednesday night and took Ramos, and only Ramos, out of the house, put him in a green vehicle and sped away, according to multiple news reports out of Venezuela. Ramos’s family has not established communication with the kidnappers, the reports said.
In 2009, a crime and safety report found that for every 100,000 Venezuelas 9.2 incidents kidnappings. Thoughts and prayers to Ramos and his family!
