Ottawa police looking for ‘lawyers’ from Toronto who allegedly threw woman through window
TORONTO — Ottawa police are seeking help identifying two suspects who investigators say “viciously grabbed” a woman from behind and threw her through a glass window before beating her unconscious in the Byward Market.
Ottawa police said the two men were at a restaurant in the 100 block of Clarence Street in the Market, when they spoke to a woman on Oct. 17, 2015.
At 2:30 a.m. the following morning, police said the woman walked with another woman from the restaurant/bar to a parking lot located at 141 Clarence St., while being followed by the two men.
While the women were paying for parking, police said both men “viciously grabbed” one of the women from behind and threw her through a window, causing it to shatter.
While the woman was on the ground, police said the men repeatedly kicked her in the chest and head until she was unconscious. The second woman did not sustain any serious injuries during the assault.
The suspects are described by police as Asian men, between 25 to 35 years old. Police said they told the woman during an earlier conversation that they were lawyers from the Toronto area.
