A Toronto Woman Was Held Captive For Two Days And Police Just Identified The Suspect
Police say he's violent and may be armed.
Police have tracked down the suspect who allegedly held a woman captive and assaulted her for two days straight earlier this week.
The woman was forcibly confined in the Fort York area near Bathurst and Lakeshore in downtown Toronto, from Monday June 4th to 5th.
Below is the photo of the suspect, provided by the Toronto Police Service:
The suspect has been identified as 29-year-old Hussain Al-Naqeeb from Maple, Ontario. He's being charged with assault with a weapon, uttering threats, and causing unecessary suffering related to the case. Police have yet to identify a motive for holding the woman captive.
Investigators describe Al-Naqeeb as five-foot-ten and 185 pounds. They also say he's violent and may be armed with a knife.
For this reason, police are warning anyone who spots him to avoid approaching him, and instead call 911 right away. Anyone with information is being asked to contact police or Crime Stoppers anonymously.
