Police offer new details about crossbow attack
TORONTO – A man dressed in white turned his truck onto Bayberry Drive outside Toronto and gathered a large cardboard box in his arms, careful to keep the trigger end of the crossbow on his side. With a gloved hand, he rang a doorbell. When a woman answered, he fired a bolt into her chest, nearly killing her, and fled.
Authorities have released new details on the Nov.
7 attack in Mississauga, including edited footage of the attack from a porch security camera partially showing the man’s face, in a bid to find the attacker.
Investigators believe the attack was intentional, and may have been a hit orchestrated by another person. They declined to identify the victim out of concern for her safety.
“The attack was meant to end the victim’s life,” said Peel Regional Police Superintendent Heather Ramore. “The victim suffered massive trauma that was both lifethreatening and life-altering.”
The victim did not know her attacker, Detective Sgt.
Jim Kettles said. She spent several months recovering in the hospital after suffering damage to her internal organs. “Her life will never be the same,” he said.
