Police are searching for a 27-year-old man in connection to the alleged kidnapping of a woman in Edmonton on Friday.

Police responded to a downtown address at approximately 8:30 a.m. to investigate an alleged kidnapping.

The woman said she was taken against her will to her workplace, where the suspect then demanded money from her.

The woman reportedly managed to escape and flee into a nearby business, where the employees locked the door and called 911.

Police say this is the second time the male suspect had taken the woman against her will.

The first incident occurred on April 28, when the suspect -- with the help of another woman -- forced the complainant into her vehicle and then transported her to a downtown residence.

Three days later, the woman was left alone and managed to escape. Her truck was stolen at the time and has yet to be located.

The suspect is at large and is considered armed and dangerous. Police have issued multiple kidnapping, robbery and weapon-related warrants for Jesse Thomas‚Äč Flamant's arrest.  

A 46-year-old woman has been arrested in connection with the April 28 incident.
