Mounties in Grand Bay-Westfield are asking for the public’s help to identify and locate a person of interest after an incident involving assault with a weapon in Nerepis, N.B.
RCMP responded to a call around 2:45 p.m. Tuesday after a report of an assault with a weapon at a home on Birch Street. A 33-year-old woman was struck over the head with a crowbar in the front yard.
She was taken to hospital to be treated for non-life-threatening injuries and has since been released.
Police learned a man fled the scene in a vehicle before officers arrived.
The suspect is described as being around five feet eight inches tall, with a skinny build, believed to be between the ages of 25 and 28 years old.
He also has short, buzzed, dirty blond hair and was seen wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, jeans and white sunglasses.
His vehicle is described as a black four-door car — a possible Honda Civic between 2016 to 2020 — with a tinted back windshield and tinted back windows. It appears to have a spoiler on the back.
The RCMP is releasing images of the vehicle, hoping that information from the public may help provide additional information to help the investigation.
