LOS ANGELES (RNN/CNN) - Police are searching for a suspect who was filmed kidnapping a woman in broad daylight.

Security footage shows the victim and suspect arguing. The man then grabs the woman and shoves her into a nearby minivan - presumably a light blue Chrysler.

After securing her inside the vehicle, he gets in and drives away.

Los Angeles police became aware of the crime at 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday, according to ABC7.

The woman appeared to be around 25-to-35 years old and Hispanic, police said.

The man was around the same age, but weighed close to 250 pounds. The footage shows him wearing a turned-around baseball cap.

Police believe that the two know another, but have not been able to identify a motive for the crime.
