Postie saves teen from sex trafficking

Mailman Ivan Crisostomo and the human trafficking victim he helped rescue Crystal Allen in Sacramento California on Aug. 2 2018

A postman who managed to save a 16-year-old girl from a three-month-long sex trafficking ordeal has been publicly thanked by the girl that he saved.

Crystal told her story of being lured by a "friend" into the hands of sex-traffickers.

She went on to tell reporters that she was drugged and abused by her captors and it was nearly impossible to escape.

The youngster and Crisostomo reunited on Thursday, where she expressed gratitude toward him for helping her. "Ivan himself is a hero for saving me", Allen told FOX 40. When he looked around, he saw 16-year-old Crystal Allen.

"They told me that they were taking me somewhere to hurt me and I kind of just thought I'd grow the balls and jump out the auto", the girl told KTXL. But she soon found herself caught in "a world of drugs and sex trafficking", according to KOVR. On June 8, Crystal escaped her kidnapper's auto and fled, grabbing one of their phones. "They made it impossible", Crystal said in a statement to KCRA.

"I just cried all the time and prayed that I'd get to see my mom again". She was able to later use that phone to contact her mother, Ohman. That's when Crisostomo found her.

"I hear this crying, this desperate crying", he said.

He told Fox 40 she began pointing to her arm claiming "they were putting things in me". "So, I went around behind this large, bush-like thing, large tree and saw this young lady", he said. They are coming to get me, " Crisostomo said. "I couldn't even understand her she was so upset and that's when I told her she had to reach out to someone for safety and she gave the phone to Ivan and he instantly kicked into gear and told me that he would save my daughter". "That's how I see it". "We had no idea where she was or anything". "We had no idea where she was or anything", Ohman added.

Crisostomo stayed with the girl until police arrived and took her to the hospital.

The father of four said that he immediately knew that she was trying to get away from something horrific, so he took her into his mail truck and let her stay there until she was safe.
