Trial beginning for man accused of kidnapping woman at knifepoint

Elderly victim ready to be first to testify

ANDERSON — Prosecutors are moving forward with charges of kidnapping and carjacking for a man who allegedly held an elderly woman at knifepoint.

The trial for Jimmy Nave Jr., 33, of Anderson, is set to start today in Madison Circuit Court 4. Several police and other witnesses are expected to testify on Day 1, but some of the most important information will likely come from the 81-year-old woman. She is scheduled to be one of the first witnesses to testify this morning.

According to police reports of the incident on Feb. 16, the woman walked out to her car in the parking lot of Mounds Mall after a morning of shopping around noon. Almost immediately after she entered the vehicle, Nave allegedly ran up to the car, opened the driver's side rear door and put his hand over the woman's mouth and held a knife to her throat.

The woman told police that Nave was ordering her to drive out of the parking lot when a witness walked up to the car and asked what was going on.

That witness, who works at the mall and was walking to his car on break, told police he was drawn to the victim’s vehicle by her screams. When he got there, he saw her in the driver’s seat, Nave behind her with his hand over her mouth.

Nave then slid over and exited the vehicle on the passenger’s side. Both the victim and witness were able to describe what he was wearing. The witness provided police with a physical description of the assailant.

He also told police he could see Nave clinching something in his hand as he headed off in the direction of the north end of the building. The witness followed until Nave ran away and then called 911 as he went to check on the victim.
