Bizarre Yet Brave Move Saves Local Kidnapping Victim
This is one of those stories that you’d think could have been pulled from an episode of Law & Order. Sadly, it wasn’t. In fact, it happened right in our very own backyard.
A young woman from Wildwood, whom police are not identifying, is okay today, but not before one of the strangest incidents you may have ever heard.
According to the Press of Atlantic City, police arrested 45-year-old Floribert Nava, of Wildwood, and charged her with kidnapping after she allegedly forced the juvenile, at gunpoint, to drive from her from Wildwood to Delaware.
But here’s where the story gets a little strange. By the time the pair got to the Ben Franklin Bridge, the juvenile decided to take action. According to police, a Delaware River Port Authority officer was sitting in his patrol car at the foot of the bridge when a car came barreling into it. That car that hit the cop was being driven by the young woman from Wildwood.
The young victim then jumped from the vehicle and told the officer that the passenger had a gun and had kidnapped her earlier in the day.
Nava was then arrested right there on the bridge.
Police say the entire incident may have revolved around a recently adopted child currently living in Delaware, but officials are not releasing too many details.
