Surrey RCMP seek public assistance in 'Acid Attack' in Newton

...shouldn't be too hard to ID that ugly green geo metro with a dent on the front.





Surrey RCMP seek help to identify suspect in acid attack (with video)


METRO VANCOUVER -- Surrey RCMP are asking for the public's help to find a man who threw a jar of acid at a Surrey business owner.

On the morning of Sept. 7, Tammy Sinclair was working at Sinclair's Motorsports, the business she owns with her husband Gordon, when she was approached by a man who appeared to be a customer.

The man chatted with her about ATVs for a few minutes and then, without warning, threw a jar filled with muriatic acid in her face.

As Tammy screamed for her husband, the man ran away. Gordon called 911 and Tammy was taken to hospital, where she was treated for minor burns to her face.

Police say the attack was targeted, but they don't yet know the motive.

The Sinclairs say they'd never seen the man before and have no idea why the man threw acid at Tammy.

"She never saw it coming," Gordon said.

Tammy's injuries were less severe than they might have been because she turned her head when the man threw the acid in her face.

"She dodged a bullet," Gordon said.

However, Tammy has been living in fear since the attack and both she and Gordon are suspicious of any customers who come to their shop.

After investigating for five months, police decided on Friday to release video footage of the attack and surveillance photos of the suspect, two male associates and a possible getaway vehicle.

The suspect is described as Caucasian, in his 20s or 30s, five-foot-six to five-foot-10, with very short blond or light brown hair and no facial hair. He was wearing a black baseball cap, dark hoodie, checkered shorts and white running shoes.

The vehicle is believed to be a green Dodge Colt or Geo Metro.

Police say the two male associates are considered persons of interest and investigators would like to speak with them.

Muriatic acid is another name for hydrochloric acid.

Jesus Christ, they are probably in Mexico by now, how about releasing this immediately so people can actually look for them? By now the car has been fixed, repainted, and traded in...

Two blocks from the Police Station and where that mother was beaten to death outside the Hockey rink. Newton seems worse then Whalley.

"I have witnessed the pig guts smeared on their store front, the threats etc. Dan has so many people involved in his quest to destroy these people, like his son who is a huge bully and all of his buddies...it's a nightmare for the Sinclairs. "

Interesting review...

this thread talks about the sinclar vs laybourne scooter 'war'
Kijiji ad: Electric Scooter Speed Upgrade - 40km/h at 60v +more upgrades - Toronto Electric Riders Association (Toronto, ON) - Meetup

Quote:
The reason for flags is because there is an ongoing lawsuit and battle between sinclair motorsports which is a former gio dealer and valley motorsports which is the new gio dealer for vancouver area.

If anyone who uses craigslist motorcycles in vancouver knows, sinclairs spams their chinese bike and atv ads as well as flags any competitors ads.

It is a constant battle with sinclairs and their family as they are on line all day spamming and flagging.

It may be unethical, but not illegal. Cops don't care, craigslist doesnt care.

I never understood why surveillance videos are always so low quality. You can barely make out their faces. No wonder criminals get away so easily.

I say the same thing when I see people buying $30 dash cameras that record at VGA, but some people need to learn things the hard way.

Recently spoke to a crown council lawyer and he mentioned that he had a lengthy tour in the new cop shop. Sounds like a fun job!

Lowside, you really disappoint and fail me. Specially someone who has a fair bit of money to invest, has or had nice cars, and could be an influence to many on this site. You may have a happy content life but I find you to be rather sad. Fail me again?
