Edmonton police looking for suspect after man slaps woman in parking lot
Edmonton police are looking for a man who allegedly randomly assaulted a woman at a southwest parking lot.
Officers received a report of an assault at around 4:45 p.m. Sunday.
Police were told a woman stepped out of her vehicle in a Windermere shopping centre parking lot between the Shell gas station and Staples when she was approached by a man. The suspect then allegedly slapped the woman in the face, while he screamed obscenities at her.
Police said he was seen driving away in a full size, older model grey van believed to be a Ford E250, with a bogus license plate on the front of the vehicle that contained the word “RIPPER”. The vehicle also had a sliding door on the passenger side.
The suspect is described as thin, 50 to 55 years old, between 6’0 and 6’3″, with black hair and brown eyes.
Police believe there were people in the parking lot who saw the incident.
