ORLANDO, Fla. - Orlando police are searching for the man they say is wanted after stabbing a woman he met on an online dating site and forcing her to commit sexual acts.

Police said the 19-year-old victim met the man on and agreed to meet in person after talking for two hours.  An hour and half, later the man picked the victim up from her residence, stopped at the Mobil gas station on Hiawassee and Old Winter Garden Road, parked in a bank parking lot, according to police.

The man then showed a knife and forced the victim to perform sex acts on him, to which she complied, police said.

According to police, the man then tried to force the victim out of the car, but she refused to leave without her purse.

Police said he then drove away with the victim inside, who began screaming she was raped at passing vehicles. The victim got out of the car with her purse and was stabbed in the thigh by the man.

Police released surveillance video of the man and described his vehicle as a newer model, white Toyota Camry.

The woman was taken to an area hospital, treated and released.
