A woman who allegedly took part in a kidnapping has been added to the Roswell’s Most Wanted list.

Tasha Nicole Ortega-Bravo, 29, is wanted on two charges of kidnapping, two charges of conspiracy to commit kidnapping and one count of aggravated battery, according to a press release from the Roswell Police Department Thursday.

The charges Ortega-Bravo faces are in connection with a May 7 incident when she, along with a boyfriend and several other people, allegedly held a woman against her will, placed the victim in a vehicle, took her to different locations and assaulted her, according to court documents.

Ortega-Bravo is alleged to have twice struck the female victim with a firearm — once in the back of the head and another time in the face. The female victim also had her hands bound and was threatened by Ortega-Bravo if she tried to escape.

Two other people have been charged and arrested in the case.
