Woman shot with crossbow by person posing as deliveryman

Peel Regional Police released surveillance video today of the November 7 attack as they appealed for help finding the attacker.

The infrared camera footage showed a man wearing a white hoodie, long tracksuit trousers, black gloves and a white cap, holding a rectangular cardboard box which contained the large weapon.

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

Those moments edited out almost killed the homeowner.

'We are confident with assistance from the public and with current facial recognition technology we will bring those responsible for the attack to justice, ' she said.

"The injuries that she sustained were absolutely devastating", said Det.

"She'll be in recovery phase for the rest of her life...her life will never be the same". Sgt. Jim Kettles said at a press conference on Monday.

"The victim suffered massive trauma that was both life-threatening and life-altering", Peel Regional Police Superintendent Heather Ramore said at a news conference Monday.

Kim said in the speech that he is willing to try a third summit with Trump, but only if the United States changes its approach. Trump has welcomed further talks with Kim, insisting their personal relationship was "excellent".

After a brief conversation, the suspect allegedly shot the victim with an arrow using a crossbow that was concealed inside of the box.

A Mississauga, Ont. woman was almost killed after a man posing as a delivery person shot her with a crossbow, in what police have described as a targeted attack.

Police believe the weapon that was used was created to be used by hunters to take down large game such as moose and deer.

Crossbows 500 millimetres or less in length are prohibited by law but there are no licensing restrictions on weapons such as the one purportedly used. "Anybody over the age of 18 can purchase one of these weapons at any one of the sporting good store that happen to carry them", Kettles said.

Ramore said the suspect may have been hired to carry out the attack.

"We're open to anything at this point", he said.

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. They are still attempting to establish if the suspect was accompanied by anyone else.

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