CALIFORNIA – A California teen credits a postal worker for rescuing her from sex trafficking, a world in which she claims she was trapped in.

Ivan Crisostomo, a South Sacramento postal carrier, found 16-year-old Crystal Allen after he heard "desperate crying" from behind a tree, the New York Post reported. Crisostomo, a father of four, told Fox 40 that his instincts kicked in when he saw the young girl.

"She started to point to her arm, saying, 'They were putting things in me. They were putting things in me. They are coming to get me,'" Crisostomo told the news station. Read more from the Palos Verdes Patch.
