Trial beginning for man accused of kidnapping woman at knifepoint

Elderly victim ready to be first to testify


Nave was eventually tracked down and arrested at Manie's Garage at 2100 Pitt St. It's still unclear why he attacked the woman.

Nave was identified after he went to the business and asked for a ride, the affidavit said. He was wearing the clothing described and fit the physical build.

Deputy prosecutor Bob Summerfield, who will be trying the case for the state, said the particulars of that day haven't changed after months of detail gathering, and the evidence should speak for itself once it's presented to a jury.

"I can't talk much about it, but we are still going forward with the two charges. We wouldn't be if we didn't feel we had the evidence to back it up," Summerfield said. "[Nave] is innocent until I prove him guilty."

The woman was essentially unharmed aside from a few scrapes and scratches from having her head held back against the seat, but police reported she was very scared by the incident.

The charge of kidnapping is a Class A felony and the carjacking is a Class B felony. If convicted, Nave could be facing significant prison time. The man doesn't have any criminal background in Indiana.
