Police have asked the public for help in tracking down a woman and her vehicle after a bias incident targeting Black congressional candidate Tim Alexander.

Alexander is a former detective captain with the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office and current civil rights attorney who ran against Republican U.S. Rep. Jeff Van Drew in the 2nd District.

Middle Township police on Tuesday evening were called to the Rio Grande section of town about stuffed animals hanging in rope nooses above a political sign for Alexander.

Investigators found video footage of a white female with blonde hair getting out of a late model, dark-colored sedan and hanging the nooses before driving away, according to Cape May County Prosecutor Jeffrey Sutherland.

The late model, four-passenger sedan with chrome trim and tinted windows appears to be a Buick — it was seen parked in the area where the incident happened.

With roughly 90% of votes in Wednesday, Van Drew had easily clinched re-election with 61% to Alexander’s 38% — the remaining votes were split between two independent candidates.
