Three Arrested in Connection to Abduction of 11-Year Old Girl

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

The Corpus Christi Police Department arrested three teens on Sunday in connection with the abduction of an 11-year old girl.

The neighborhood around Braesvalley Drive was scared to let their kids out and play after the girl was abducted when riding her bike on Thursday night; but after gathering information and identifying the suspects, police were able to arrest 17-year old Eric Dirmick, 18-year old Jacob Musich and 18-year old Colton Visor.

Police went to Visor's residence on the 5300 block of Spring Brook Drive and arrested both Visor and Dirmick. Officers then arrested Musich at his house on the 7300 block of Tangled Ridge at around 4 a.m. Sunday.

The 11-year old girl was abducted on Braesvalley Drive on Thursday. She was riding her bicycle and a 13-year old boy was walking a dog beside her. The vehicle pulled up beside the girl and the suspects grabbed the her and was able to force the victim into the vehicle.

About an hour later, the kidnappers released the girl on the beach. She walked to the area of Seapines and Park Road 22, where she was able to flag down a motorist for help. The girl had no apparent injuries, but was immediately taken to Driscoll Children's Hospital for evaluation.

Since the incident, neighbors have been scared to even let their kids out to play. They feel a huge sense of relief now that these three teens are behind bars.

"I feel a little bit more at ease knowing that my kids can at least walk outside," said Sandra Arredondo, who lives in the Braesvalley neighborhood.

"I'm so happy that they caught them," neighbor Catarina Estrada said. "I'm glad that everything went okay. It was awful."

All three teens are charged with aggravated kidnapping, a first-degree felony that is punishable by up to 99 years in prison and up to a $10,000 fine.

All three teens are still in jail, and their bond is set at $1 million each.
