(CBS/AP) MERRITT ISLAND, Fla. - Authorities in Brevard County are looking for a man who allegedly kidnapped and robbed an Aflac insurance company employee and later drove the victim back to work, reports CBS affiliate WKMG.

According to Florida Today, police say a man walked into an Aflac office on Merritt Island and forced the unidentified employee to leave with him at gunpoint.

The station reports that a spokeswoman for the sheriff's office said the perpetrator forced the worker into her own car and drove to a nearby bank. The suspect reportedly told the woman to withdraw money and once the victim came back to the car, the man dropped her off back at the insurance office. The suspect fled with the victim's vehicle.

Police reportedly say the suspect is described as a man in his 20's with some facial hair and a thin build. He was wearing a black baseball cap, black pants and a white shirt, according to WKMG.
