Tour of an Albuquerque, New Mexico jail takes terrifying turn for 16-year-old girl.

(KOB) Newly released surveillance video from inside Albuquerque, New Mexico's Metropolitan Detention Center shows a 16-year-old girl taking a tour on which she says she was abused by inmates.

It's what you can't see in the video that has the girl's father most worried.

There are cameras on the group of girls as they take their tour, but they don't seem to show a lot.

"I think I was right there," said Tia, as she watched the surveillance tape. "Yeah, that's me."

Tia has been waiting to see the security footage from her September tour of MDC.

"The ones in the blue are all of us, but the ones in the orange are inmates," she explained.

Inside MDC, Tia moves around the inmate pod with a tour group of other teens.

Last month, Tia said she'd been groped, hit and verbally assaulted during the tour.

Throughout the video, inmates seem to keep their distance from the ladies in blue, but Tia says the abuse happened just below the view point of a camera in the main women's pod.
