Suspect posing as delivery man shot woman with concealed crossbow, police say

Suspect

A Mississauga woman almost lost her life past year when she was shot with an arrow by a suspect posing as a delivery man, police revealed on Monday.

Police said on November 7, 2018 at approximately 8 p.m., officers responded to a residence on Bayberry Drive in Mississauga where a 44-year-old woman was located with life-threatening injuries.

The two engaged in a "brief conversation", police said, before the suspect suddenly fired an arrow at the woman from a crossbow hidden inside of the box.

Investigators say they believe this was a premeditated, targeted, and isolated attack based on the conversation that occurred between the victim and the suspect.

The crossbow was commonly used by hunters to kill large game, such as moose and deer, according to Division Superintendent Heather Ramore.

Police have released security footage of the suspect, and are asking anyone with information to come forward. The injuries she sustained were absolutely devastating.

Peel police say this is the type of crossbow that was used in the shooting. The weapon was never removed from the package during the attack. The vehicle is described as a dark-coloured pickup truck that was in the area of the home minutes before and after the attack took place.

"(She) spent several months in hospital", he explained.

Democratic leaders "should look at the anti-Semitic, anti-Israel and ungrateful US HATE statements Omar has made", he added. Democrats who criticized the president over the tweet defended Omar, with some noting their past disagreements with her.

"Her life will never be the same".

Investigators have not ruled out that the man may have been hired to carry out the attack. "It involved damage to a lot of her internal organs", Kettles said.

"We are open to anything at this point", Kettles said, "and we are looking at all possible investigative avenues".

The victim was home alone, but managed to close the door and call 911 after the attack.

The woman got a "direct look" at the man who attacked her, but was unable to identify him.

"It is clear that this attack was meant to end the victim's life", Kettles said.

"The suspect's right hand was in the box and investigators believe that arm was used to trigger the crossbow and fire", Peel Regional Police Detective Sergeant Jim Kettles said in a news conference on Monday.

"There are potential motives that we have established", Kettles said. Police said it's possible the suspect was wearing some sort of head covering underneath the baseball hat, such as a wig.
