Tyler Police looking for kidnapper

Tyler Police say they're on the hunt for a man who kidnapped a woman at gunpoint around 7:00 pm Thursday evening on East Charnwood Street.

The woman told officers a black male took her money and jewelry, then tied her hands and drove her to a wooded location, finally putting her in the car's trunk.

The kidnapper then reportedly drove back to her home and took a purse from inside the house before fleeing on foot. The woman was not injured in the incident.

The kidnapper is described as a man in his 30s or 40s, about 5' 11", weighing between 230 and 250 pounds.

He was last seen wearing a black jacket, blue jeans, black gloves and a ski mask.
