Taco Bell Crime of the Week: Duct-Taped Kidnap Victim Stops Car From Crashing into Taco Bell!
This story sounds too crazy to be true, but it absolutely is--and, of course, it had to happen in Florida.
A kidnapped woman whose hands and face were bound in duct tape made an incredible save Saturday when she stopped a moving car from rolling into a Taco Bell in North Lauderdale, according to the Broward Sheriff's Office.
Judith Moncion told police she was leaving a beauty supply store shortly after 10:30 p.m. when a man opened her driver's-seat door, pointed a gun, and told her to be quiet. As soon as she screamed, she said, the suspect wrapped duct tape around her head, over her nose and mouth and around her hands.
The man threw Moncion in the backseat, got into the driver's seat, and drove away while a witness who saw the incident called 911, according to the BSO.
