THE BRONX - The victims of an alleged attempted abduction in The Bronx last Saturday say they are still living in fear, but grateful to be alive.

Jose Vasquez says he and his father, Leonardo, were operating their fruit and vegetable stand on Walton Avenue and 170th Street when three masked men with knives jumped inside his van, duct taped him and then robbed him.

Many residents and business owners in the neighborhood say they're now concerned for their own safety and the safety of their own employees.
