Armed men kidnapped an American university professor while she was visiting her mother in the violent Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez, the state prosecutor’s office said Saturday.
The American was identified as Veronica Perez Rodriguez, an archeologist at Northern Arizona University.
A source at the Chihuahua state prosecutor’s office said she was visiting her mother in Ciudad Juarez Friday afternoon “and the moment she left her family’s house she was intercepted by armed men and deprived of her liberty.”
Since 2003, Perez has been an associate professor of anthropology at the university in Flagstaff, Arizona.
