A man is in the hospital with serious injuries after police thwarted an alleged kidnapping attempt in the city’s west-end Sunday afternoon.

Police said that they received a call for unknown trouble at around 2:45 p.m. in the Renforth Drive and Tabard Gate area.

Investigators said a man had been forced into a car and when officers arrived at the scene, a pursuit ensued.

The suspects ditched the car near Legion Road in Mimico. When officers approached the car they saw a man in the back with “significant injuries.”

Paramedics were called and the victim was transported to a trauma center in life-threatening condition. On Monday, police said his injuries are serious but not life-threatening.

Officers searched the area and arrested three of four suspects from the car. Police continue to search for a fourth suspect considered armed, violent and dangerous.

Anyone with information is asked to contact investigators or leave an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers.
