Acid Attack Suspect Wanted In Surrey, B.C.

SURREY, B.C. - RCMP in British Columbia are appealing for the public's help in identifying a man wanted in a disturbing acid attack.

Mounties say the man entered a Surrey business on Sept. 7 and threw a jar of acid on the owner's wife in what police believe was a targeted attack.

He then fled on foot and likely got into a vehicle waiting nearby.

Surrey RCMP say they've exhausted all possible avenues of investigation and today released video footage, hoping someone in the public may be able to identify the suspect.

In the video, a white male can be seen carrying a clear glass-type mug with clear liquid inside.

Cpl. Bert Paquet says the attack has had devastating consequences for the victim.
