Fifth District detectives are currently searching for two men suspected of kidnapping a woman early this morning.

Near East 123rd Street and Chesterfield Avenue, a woman was driving when she noticed a Lincoln Continental flashing its lights at her. Thinking she was being pulled over by police, she stopped her car and met the man at her window. He then ordered her out and handcuffed her before tossing her in the backseat of her own car and driving off. A second man had also entered the car with them.

They drove around for a while and let the woman out at East 109th Street. The two men took her car and cell phone.

Per 19 Action News:

The victim's vehicle is a 2006 Cadillac DTS Ohio plate FRL4681, light blue in color. The suspect's vehicle is an older model Lincoln Continental four door, light beige/two toned in color.

The first suspect is described as a man in his late 40s, 5'9" - 6' with a stocky build and short hair and a mustache. This man was wearing a long sleeved white thermal shirt, a white t-shirt with blue print, blue work pants and black shoes. The second suspect is described as being 6'3 and very skinny. He was wearing a hooded zip up jacket with beige and brown stripes, mask covering part of his face.
