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.
