The Vancouver police released images of a luxury silver sedan connected to a violent assault of a woman on Feb. 17 in Kitsilano in an effort ensure she is safe.
The car may be a BMW M3, but police have not ruled out other possibilities.
“We’re asking her --- or anyone who thinks they may know who she is --- to contact us,” said constable Jason Doucette. “They can do so anonymously through Crime Stoppers if they like. The most important thing is that we need to ensure that she is okay.”
Crime Stoppers can be reached at 604-717-0603.
Police also recovered long, blond hair extension from the lane.
Investigators believe these photographs may help someone recognize the woman.
Both the victim and the suspect remain unidentified.
Shortly after 2 a.m. on the morning of Feb. 17, witnesses reported hearing a woman scream and saw her lying on the ground in the south lane of West 10 Avenue near Alder Street. A man was seen repeatedly striking her before pulling her into a vehicle. Police were called, but the driver sped off before officers arrived. An extensive search failed to locate the vehicle or occupants.
The victim is described as a white woman in her early 20s with a slender build and long, straight platinum-blonde hair with bangs. She was wearing a neutral-coloured top and a black skirt.
The suspect is described as a well-dressed white man in his 30s with an athletic build. He was clean-shaven with slicked-back dark hair and was wearing a long black trench coat and blue jeans.
Anyone with information is asked to call the tip line at 604-717-0603 or Crime Stoppers.
