Police Nab Alleged Kidnappers on GW Bridge in Fort Lee, New Jersey
Port Authority police recently nabbed two alleged kidnappers on the George Washington Bridge in Fort Lee, NJ.
According to authorities, the suspects abducted the victim in Gwinnett County, GA, stole his motor vehicle, and drove him to the Garden State. When police stopped the suspects on the GW Bridge, they were allegedly driving the stolen car.
New Jersey law enforcement was looking for the suspects because Georgia police had previously called about the kidnapping. Apparently, family members of the victim told GA police that the suspects kidnapped him and were headed to NJ in a 2014 Toyota Camry with Georgia license plates.
Port Authority police officers noticed the vehicle approaching the GW bridge toll plaza and pulled over the suspects on the westbound side of the bridge.
The victim, a 39-year-old male, was later treated at Englewood Hospital because he suffered a stab wound to his leg.
When police searched the stolen car, they allegedly found a loaded 9mm Glock handgun.
The two suspects, both of whom hail from Georgia, have been charged with multiple crimes, including kidnapping, criminal restraint, carjacking, aggravated assault, and unlawful possession of a weapon.
After being placed under arrest and processed, the suspects were remanded to the Bergen County Jail in Hackensack on separate $2 million bail amounts.
