Tisha Campbell took to social media on Jan. 28 with a serious message: "Be overly aware of yourself and your surroundings." The longtime actress shared a story about how she almost got "caught". According to her story, Tisha called a taxi to her hotel, but when an "incomplete" van pulled up with two men in it, her guard was shot. Luckily, Tisha emerged from the situation unscathed.
Two days after Tisha shared her experience on Instagram, the Brownsville Police Department said it could not confirm her story.
"After reviewing the facts presented by Ms. Campbell in her video, BPD investigators quickly launched an investigation as these cases are not the norm in our city," the department wrote on Facebook Jan. 30. "Through numerous interviews and reviews of security camera footage, we have not been able to confirm Ms. Campbell's stay at Brownsville hotels or any other claims made in the video."
The Texas-based department said it also learned about Tisha's story through social media.
"Unfortunately, our department learned of Ms. Campbell's ordeal through social media and not through traditional media as one would expect from a victim of an attempted heinous crime," Brownsville police wrote.
As previously reported, Tisha said the situation escalated during filming at a location with no available Ubers. So he decided to get a cab number. When the truck arrived, the man in the back seat got out and stayed there. Tisha says that at first she believed the passenger's journey had ended at her location. But he started demanding that Tisha get in the truck and she said "no".
"I look in the car, it's broken," said Tisha. “The rubber is pulled up from below; there is dirt everywhere. The back seat looked like it had been snatched and snatched away for a damn reason."
At this point, the driver asks Tisha to get into the van. She declined again. The other man starts pushing Tisha's body towards the car.
One of the men asks her to sit in the front seat. She can extricate herself from the situation and speak to the person at the front desk through the number. The receptionist says, "Why should I give you this number?"
"If Tony Rivera hadn't taught me and my friends what to look for, SH*T would have been very different. PLUS, I don't sound like what I look like. I am also grateful to the production for their concern and understanding," Tisha wrote in the caption of the posted video.
Tisha wrote that she felt it was "a set-up / it was a real set-up".
It is estimated that 400,000 people are trafficked in the United States. About 60 percent of these people are women. Roommates, please remember to always be vigilant when travelling. In emergency situations, contact the relevant authorities. Let's send love to Tisha during this time.
