Arizona family visiting their Sonora condo are terrorized on Caborca highway, "They terrorized us with AK47s'

Chivis Martinez Borderland Beat  LaSillaRota Natalie Lines Davis FaceBook TY Steve C

American Natalie Lines Davis, narrated in her profile of Facebook the moments of terror experienced by  husband Mason Davis and their two daughters, when they were assaulted by armed men and then stripped of the vehicle in which they were traveling, on the highway between Caborca ​​and Puerto Peñasco, in Sonora.

On October 6th around 6pm they headed to their condo in a 2017 Tundra, pulling a 20’ trailer with 3 ATVs, mountain bikes, food and luggage, when they spotted a gray sedan that came up side by side to their vehicle, and through an open window pointed an AK-47 at her husband shouting to stop or they would shoot…………………..

The image above; “When the high jacking took place my daughter was on Snapchat, she didn’t realize until later that she caught the whole thing on video (use this hyperlink). Very chilling and very real.”

What would be a few days of vacation for the Davis family, on the beaches of Sonora , turned into moments of terror when a group of hitmen threatened them with long weapons, to steal all their belongings.

Natalie and Mason Davis, residents of  Mesa,  Arizona,  crossed the border last Tuesday  to enjoy the sea with their two daughters in Puerto Lobos, a coastal community in the municipality of Caborca, where, in recent weeks, armed clashes, business fires and executions have been recorded.

The family owns a condo in this town and they travel there frequently for vacation. This occasion was no different than the previous ones.

However, when they were traveling on the section of the Caborca - Puerto Lobos highway around 6:00, a sedan-type car approached them and a man pointed a "goat's horn" at them, to force them to stop.

There the terror began .

"A gray sedan pulled up by the driver's side door, pulled out an AK-47 and pointed it directly at my husband ... ordered him to stop or they would shoot him. Immediately my husband stopped and they ordered him to get off the road, with a machine gun still pointed at his face, "says Natalie.

The mother of the family described that she and her two daughters were still in the car when the hit man got into the driver's seat, they could not believe what was happening, until her husband's voice broke in the moment to ask the criminal to let them go down.

Before the man answered, Natalie and her daughters opened the doors of the truck and got out as fast as they could. The hit man sped down the road.

"Mason begged the man to let his family out. In seconds, we all made a quick decision and got out of the car immediately. In fact, it was so immediate that as the car drove away, all the doors were still open," he continues.

At that time, the family was in shock. They did not know what had happened, but they were afraid that members of the drug cartels were still in the area, so they ran to take cover in some nearby fields, while her husband sought help.

It was then that a vehicle from a nearby mining company passed by and helped the family. They were transferred to a military post, where they helped them call their relatives and staff from the United States Consulate.

"For a few seconds, I thought this could be part of the cartel too and they wanted our family. Mason quickly assured me that we were safe. Within moments, we were on the phone with Washington and those who could help us. The Consulate of the United States told us that help was on the way, "says Natalie.

The family was already safe, but they could not return home, or to their country, due to the partial closure of the border due to the Covid-19 health contingency, where at 8:00 at night they prevent any entry by the sentry boxes.

The workers of the mining company and the military of the Secretariat of National Defense (Sedena) took them to Puerto Peñasco, one of the cities closest to the border and to the point where they were.

There, they looked for a place in the hotels, but they were already at 100% capacity. Natalie says that a family felt sorry for them and put them in their condominium, from where she wrote this report of the most difficult moments of her life.

"Now here I am sitting in this beautiful borrowed room wearing dirty clothes, without any possessions that we came with and more than grateful for the blessings of this day. My family is safe, our children were not kidnapped, our lives were prolonged and I remember once again that God lives and watches over each one of us, "he wrote.

Sonora State Police and Prosecutor's Office investigate case

The Secretary of Public Security of Sonora, David Anaya Cooley and the commissioner of the State Police of Public Security (PESP) met virtually with the mayor of Puerto Peñasco, Ernesto Munro López, municipality where the American family stayed and were supported.

The authorities agreed to investigate the events that occurred on the road to Puerto Lobos as well as to increase security in this area of ​​the state, known as the Gulf of Santa Clara, which is commonly visited by American tourists.

"In order to give peace of mind to travelers, tourists and residents of Puerto Peñasco, authorities of the three levels of government instructed the displacement of the police forces through that municipality and surrounding communities," says a press release.

Elements of the State Police, the Ministerial Investigative Agency (AMIC), the Navy, the Army and the National Guard participate in these operations.

It should be remembered that, in recent weeks, this area of ​​northwestern Sonora, especially in the municipality of Caborca, there have been clashes between criminal groups, as well as between hitmen and agents of the different police corporations.

In addition, last Sunday morning, the passengers of a bus denounced that armed men got into the unit to strip them of their belongings, where they were held for several hours with guns, on the section of the Caborca - Altar highway. The Sonora Prosecutor's Office is also investigating this fact.

  1. Wouldn’t doubt it if there’s a big topon coming in the next few days. When there’s an increase in vehicle theft shootouts usually follow. The next time they see that truck it’s going to be riddled with bullet holes.

    1. The only thing that would hurt the cartels would be a boycott of blood soaked mota and fentanyl. Hah! Some chance. It would need dopers with scruples. Dead babies? Shiiiiit they're only Mexicans. When you say RACIST DOPERS it's closer to the truth.

  5. There's no victim blaming from me but that area is under not only guidance from State Department as being extremely dangerous, there is a lot of coverage of shootouts in Caborca. That said, many people don't have an interest, or the desire to follow narco violence. I know people from hot spots that turn a blind eye to the coverage. So, these people probably had no idea. I am extremely well versed in violence in those areas, and I would think twice, before traveling unaccompanied without a local contact, in that way.

    What exactly happened, they all got out of the car at once, and the gunmen left, without the car?

    1. I am very surprised they didn't know how dangerous it is presently. They have had their rental for years, renting it out 200 per night and using it themselves.

      I am biting my tongue here. They had choices, Mexicans do not have the luxury. And I a sure they have insurance. I don't mean to sound cold, obviously the daughter is going to have nightmares for a long time, I am just saying they had a choice and if they did not know about what is happening in Caborca area they should have called the consulate, they will give you a list of incidents.

      know before you go

    3. Hello - they’re American - they live in and come from a world where they’re safe virtually anywhere they go in the U.S. (Chicago maybe an exception?). They live insulated in a bubble that to them IS reality. To you and most others they’re naive and uninformed, to them, they never thought they had to be (be informed that is). Humans, like all animals can be conditioned by their surrounding environment. At the very least this should be a wake-up call to them and other Americans that not everywhere is simply peaches and cream. Also, does the police and local government spring to the rescue or work with such vigor to help when it’s a resident Mexican citizen who has been victimized? From the things I read on this site it would seem the answer is obviously no. That’s f**ked up if so - all lives matter, not just American lives.

    8. mexicans could have that luxury
      if The Gov stopped stealing from them abd they ALL GOT together and DEMANDED higher wages
      Everytime i hear mexicans are poor I say its their fault
      Fight for better wages houseing etc


      Americans going down there with out knowing of the danger Which was and has been on the news is their fault

      If these Drug gangs got together to Demand the whole of Mexico pay farmers steel auto etc workers more I think the Goverment would lisiten
      ALMO should see his country rise not stay in the dark ages

    9. I have sat down and had conversations about why the Mexican people do not rise up and demand better wages. One answer I got while at the table with retired upper middle class folks is: No second Amendment....

    10. So no one told you about the right to bear arms in Mexico is granted in the Constitution? It is the 1971 provision that made it restrictive in caliber.

      There is one seller...the army. it is expensive and slow process. but there is definitely a right to bear arms.

      One way that expedites the process it is to form or join a gun club.

      Hero Don Alejo in Tamps long belonged to a gun club.

    11. Mexicans barely get money to get by, only sicarios get theirs on credit and must rob tamale vendors and force sell their pay in species to make payments.
      The US Bankster bosses would not have it other way.

    12. There's only one gun store and it's in Mexico city. It's probably easier to legally get a machine gun in the US than a measly .38 in Mexico. They need a real second amendment.

    1. It would have made news but more than likely the US would say "we told y'all bitches not to go to Mexico" and Mexico would just say that they are looking into it. More than likely a scapegoat would be found and or lower tier sicarias/cartelitas would be handed over.

      Delete
    2. Mexico wouldn't do jack shit. The US president would probably stay hush hush in order to not piss off the Mexican president. Basically nothing would happen, just like nothing has happened before when they murdered US citizens in Mexico..
      But if it's across the globe in a foreign country we will do something

  14. I’m sorry but I cannot have any sympathy for them. Back in the 1980s We would drive from Laredo to Mazatlan through Saltillo, Torreon and the mountains of Durango and also from Monterey down to Mexico city routinely. If you did that now you would only do it once and you would not come back alive. Living in a border state and owning property in Mexico I would’ve thought they would have checked the travel bans and warnings. Very bad judgment on their part and they are lucky they are alive and as Chivas indicated I’m sure they have insurance

      years. Always in a dented up asian sedan, Via Laredo, Saltillo, D.F., Acapulco. We only drive in the day.and take toll roads. There is millions of dollars of commerce transported on the 57D everyday. Nothing has happened in 25 years.

    2. You're correct that they made poor decisions and are lucky to be alive. You're incorrect about the safety of driving from Laredo to Mazatlán in 2020. Just don't do it in a pickup truck with a trailer full of ATVs. The Davis' did not have insurance in Mexico, so they can't make a claim to any insurance company and are responsible for any losses stemming from the incident. Peace.

  18. I love Mexico and the Mexican people but I would not put my children's lives in danger for a week at the beach having fun in the sun. I hope this family has learned their lesson and will now think before making such foolish decisions again. I hope for a day that the Mexican people can live without fear and be free of losing their children to either criminals or their lives by criminals, but till they stand up to their criminal government and the criminals who control their towns they will live in fear.

    Come on!!! Really?! You gonna drive not just any vehicle but a pick up truck and pull a trailer with atvs thru an area like this in MEXICO?!?!?! Really!?!?

    You can leave $1000 on a dashboard of your unlocked vehicle downtown Chicago but every reasonable atom of your body will tell you, you should not do that!!!

    1. Please forgive my lack of knowledge of Mexico but is the area in which this occurred near a vacation spot my people in SE AZ refer to as Rocky Point? These relatives of mine boast of their week long vacations in their rvs parked on the beach there and of the great food and drink availability from the numerous vendors nearby. These relatives scoff at anyone voicing concern as if they are as safe as a trip to a Six Flags or Disney park. They are always interested in having us join them in these trips but I guess I’m just not up to the “danger” I perceive. The idea of taking an expensive pickup and trailer/ fifth wheel on an adventure through Mexico is not my idea of leisure. Best to all admin and those who contribute content here...
