Police are seeking a young man who kidnapped a woman outside a Brooklyn Park grocery store, forced her at knifepoint to drive to another location, and tried to rape her. 

Police on Tuesday released a vague description of the suspect, who appeared to be a teenager.

The incident began about 8:10 p.m. Monday at the Aldi at 7600 Brooklyn Blvd., police said.

The assailant threatened the woman with a knife, forced her to drive from the store to an unspecified location, and “attempted to rape the victim,” a statement from police read.

The woman was able to get away and called 911, the statement continued.

A brief segment of the assault was captured on surveillance video, police said. Anyone who has information about the incident is urged to contact Brooklyn Park police at 763-493-8287.
