The daughter of an alleged immigrant kidnapper got her father arrested and possibly saved the lives of several kidnapped Honduran illegal immigrants on Monday.
La Joya, California police authorities are reporting that 66-year-old Julian Toscano was arrested after beating his daughter for coming to the defense of several immigrants he was holding at his home.
Allegedly Toscano was threatening the immigrants with a bat, insisting they call their relatives and demand money for their release. It was at this point that his daughter came to the defense of the immigrants and an altercation happened enabling the immigrants to escape.
Police then responded to the incident as a domestic violence call and have initially charged Toscano with assault and drug possession. Immigration officials are now investigating the kidnapping and other charges maybe forthcoming.
The illegal aliens from Honduras were captured close to the site of the incident and were handed over to U.S. Border Patrol.
