Boston: Man Sentenced For Quincy Kidnapping

A Taunton man was sentenced to 17 years in prison for kidnapping a Quincy man and two children.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office says that 20-year-old Malik Bangura was sentenced on Wednesday after pleading guilty to kidnapping.

Banguara’s arrest stems from an incident that took place on Oct. 8, 2016 when a 30-year-old Quincy man was kidnapped from the driveway of his home after being struck in the head with a revolver as he got out of his truck.

The victim was then taken to a sedan, where two masked perpetrators, later identified as Bangura and 23-year-old Diego Pires of Brockton drove the victim’s truck, with two children strapped into their car seats, to a secluded location where they unloaded approximately 30 pounds of marijuana and $20,000 from the victim’s truck, into the sedan.

The victim was held at gunpoint in the sedan as they drove from Quincy to Brockton and called the victim’s wife demanding $100,000. 

Police officers recognized the vehicle from another case and began following it at which time the suspects attempted to flee, but ultimately abandoned the sedan in a Brockton driveway. 

The victim was able to escape and lead officers to the truck where the children were found unharmed.

One of the suspects 23-year-old Yesenia Diaz of Brockton was arrested after she was found standing near the sedan. She plead guilty and is awaiting sentencing.

Another suspect, 26-year-old Sedrick Oliveira of Stoughton, was arrested a few days later and pleaded not guilty to kidnapping.

Pires was a fugitive before he was found and arrested. He has also pleaded not guilty.
