TOLEDO, Ohio (WTOL) - A warning about a man abducting women in Toledo, and forcing them to perform sex acts, against their will.
One woman, who claims she was abducted and sexually assaulted in east Toledo, is speaking out. She says it happened in the 900 block of Forsyth.
Police are also investigating another case near the intersection of Oak and Navarre streets.
In both cases, police say it happened during the day. They say the suspect may be gaining confidence and there maybe more cases. Now, police need help before he strikes again.
It's a walk one 57-year-old woman says she takes time and time again.
"I was just walking down to get a pack of cigarettes at A.J.'s, and I always take that street, the alley."
But last Tuesday she says it led her into a bad situation. The victims says a clean cut Hispanic man, calling himself John drove up.
"And it was my stupidity, he offered me a ride and I said, 'No, I don't ride with strangers.' But I've had medical problems and I was hurting, so I did take it."
Once she got in, she says he drove away and pulled out a gun.
"So he had it held at my head the whole time. I was looking right at it."
And he demanded she perform sex acts on him. She said he didn't say much.
"No, just while I was doing that, he asked if I had a boyfriend. What matter is that, I don't know."
And police think he's the same man who abducted a 39-year-old woman from this east Toledo bus stop on the first of the month.
According to the police report, the suspect drove her to the alley between McKinely and Navarre where he forced her to give him oral sex.
Detectives think the suspect either lives or works in the East Broadway-Woodville area.
"It's pretty frightening if you're on a busy street and a busy intersection and be abducted off the street," says Toledo Police Sergeant Sam Harris.
But his victims have been able to escape.
"It scared the crap out of me because I didn't know if I was going to live or not. And I don't want anybody else to get hurt."
Now this woman worries if he's not caught soon, who else will become his victim.
Police say the man is driving a small, silver car like an Escort. The plates have the letters D-O-G or D-Q-G and letters 1-1-6 or 1-1-1-6.
They say he's Hispanic, between 25 to 30 and stands five foot six and has a possible mustache or goatee.
