VicPD Detectives are continuing to investigate the random, violent attack of a 30-year-old woman that occurred in James By on Thursday, June 25 and are hoping the release of a composite sketch will help the investigation.

Officers were called to the 100-block of Rendall Street in James Bay, at approximately 10:30 p.m. June 25, after numerous 911 calls reporting that a woman had been attacked and was bleeding from a wound on her head. They arrived to find numerous concerned community members tending to the victim.

During the investigation officers have conducted detailed area canvassing, forensic identification of the scene and released a composite sketch.

The random nature of the attack is concerning for detectives and they have not yet been able to determine a motive.

“This investigation is a priority for us. The random nature of this attack concerns us and we are determined to find the person responsible,” said Detective Shawn Robson. “We need the community to help us identify this person so we can solve this investigation.”

The suspect is described as a Caucasian man, appearing between 19- to 24-years-old and approximately 6-feet tall. He had a slim build, was clean shaven and had prominent cheek bones. At the time of the attack he was wearing baggy, light-coloured, shorts, a baggy white shirt and a white bicycle helmet.

If you recognize this man, please call VicPD immediately at 250-995-7654, or report it anonymously through Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
