Riverside County Sheriff's Department says, a masked man jumped into a woman's car as she stopped on an isolated road near Moreno Valley and forced her to drive to a remote spot.  She was able to escape but the suspect got away.

It happened Friday night on Gernert Road in an unincorporated area of Moreno Valley.  Deputies don't know why she had stopped.

The masked man forced her to drive to a remote area near the intersection of Two Trees and Galaxy Heights roads.  The woman bolted from the car at the intersection, and she was able to call for help.

Deputies received a 911 call at 7:30 p.m. about the kidnapping and
searched the location but couldn't find the suspect.

The suspect was described as a man with a heavy build, 5 feet-10 inches tall, wearing dark clothes and the mask.

Deputies asked anyone with information about the man to call the Moreno
Valley station at (951) 486-6700 or (951) 247-8700.
