Police in Toronto are searching for two men wanted for an alleged kidnapping in Scarborough.

Toronto police said they were called to the area of Markham Road and Eglinton Avenue East at around 3:45 p.m. on Nov. 17 for a report of a suspicious incident.

It is alleged that a man in the area of Scarborough Town Centre was forced into a vehicle by three suspects and assaulted “over several hours.” Police said he was forced — at gunpoint — to hand over valuable jewelry.

Several hours after the ordeal began, the man escaped, according to police.
