NJ Kidnapped Teen Hit Cop Car to Get Help, Foils Abduction

CAPE MAY COURT HOUSE — Authorities say a dispute over an adoption spurred a southern New Jersey woman to kidnap a teenage girl and have her to drive to Philadelphia, but the plot was foiled when the teen deliberately struck a police car.

Cape May County Prosecutor Robert Taylor says the incident unfolded Friday in Wildwood, when 45-year-old Floribert Nava of Wildwood demanded the girl take her to the home of the family that had adopted the recently born child.

Taylor says Nava wanted the child.

As the teen drove on the Ben Franklin Bridge, she saw a police cruiser parked on the shoulder. She purposely hit it and jumped out to tell the officer what had happened.

Taylor says Nava had a handgun and a bag containing duct tape, trash bags and latex gloves.
