A manhunt is underway after a 44-year-old woman received life threatening injuries from an assailant that had disguised himself as a delivery man. 

Surveillance footage released by Canadian authorities show the suspect at the victim’s front door in a delivery uniform holding a large cardboard box.

But this was all a ruse designed to hide the loaded crossbow held within the box and aimed at the woman. After speaking with the woman for a few moments the man launches a crossbow bolt into the woman’s chest and flees the scene. 

The woman narrowly survived but will forever be changed by the attack.

“The victim suffered massive trauma that was both life-threatening and life-altering,” Peel Regional Police Superintendent Heather Ramore said at a news conference this week. “It is clear that this attack was meant to end the victim’s life.”

Now authorities are asking for the help from the public as the conduct a manhunt for the assailant involved in the attack which took place in November 2018.

They believe this was not a random act but a planned hit made against the victim. 

“Comments that were made to the victim by the suspect indicate that the victim was targeted and that the suspect may have carried out the attack at the request of another individual,” Ramore said. “This was not a random act.”
