DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - Police are hoping for some help as they investigate a kidnapping in northeast Dallas. 

According to Dallas Police, officers responded to a 9-1-1 call around 11:30 p.m. at an apartment off  I-635 and Ferguson Rd. A witness told them that she and the victim, Shanique Banks, were on their way to the store, when they saw the suspect, 56-year-old Desmond Jennings, walking towards them. 

Police say the witness and Banks ran back inside the apartment, but Jennings forced his way in before they could close the door.

Jennings reportedly grabbed a knife and forced Banks to leave with him.

Police say they've been checking nearby apartments and sending K9 units through the area, but have had no luck so far in locating the victim.
