Police are looking for a suspect after they say a woman was kidnapped off the street and forced into a car in Scarborough.

Toronto police were called for an incident around 12:02 p.m. Thursday near Guildwood Parkway and Kingston Road.

A woman was walking along the sidewalk and was approached by a man in a car, they say. The man blocked the sidewalk off with his car and grabbed the woman and forced her into the car.

He then fled the area with the woman inside, police say.

The suspect is described as 20 to 30, with a light complexion, black hair, and a beard or goatee. He was wearing a light coloured shirt, and an off white cap.

Police say he was driving a white two or four door car with a blue emblem on the rear.

The woman is described as 20 to 30, with long dark hair. She was carrying a bag.

Police are concerned for the woman's safety and are asking anyone with dashcam or security camera footage of the incident to contact them.
