The man allegedly fled in the woman’s car, a 2006 red Pontiac Torrent. The vehicle was recovered in Edmonton on Monday.
The woman was treated in hospital for a broken finger.
The suspect is described as 5’7” to 6’0” with a dark complexion and slim build. He reportedly spoke with an accent. He was last seen wearing a dark hoodie and pants.
