York Police Release Terrifying Video Of Apparent Abduction

A man can be seen dragging a woman by her hair into his vehicle in Richmond Hill.

UPDATE: Police say they have identified the man in the video as Jonathan McLennan, 27. He is considered armed and dangerous, and police are asking anyone who spots him to call 911. The woman in the video, a 28-year-old, has been located and is in good health.

EARLIER: Police in greater Toronto are looking for help identifying a man who may be responsible for an abduction captured on video by a surveillance camera.

He's seen threatening to kill a woman and dragging her by the hair into a car in the video released by York Regional Police Thursday. The suspect is a male with short hair, may be armed with a handgun and was wearing a hoodie in the video, police said in a press release. He drove away in a newer-model SUV.

The woman rang a doorbell at 2:50 a.m. on Thursday at a home in Richmond Hill. No one answered the door, but a surveillance camera caught what happened next. A man appears behind her and asks if she's going to stop. An altercation follows and he drags her into the car.

"I think I'm gonna die," she says.

"Good," he answers. "I'm gonna kill you."
