On Sept. 7 at around 10:30 a.m., a man entered Sinclair's MotoSports in the 13400-block of 71A Avenue and began talking with business owner Tammy Sinclair.
Sinclair said the man pretended to be a customer before throwing acid in her face.
"The investigation has determined that an unknown suspect attended the location and, after ensuring no potential witnesses were near, threw a jar of muriatic acid at the unsuspecting victim," said Cpl. Bert Paquet.
Mounties said the suspect then fled on foot to a green Geo Metro that was waiting nearby.
Additional surveillance photos show two other men believed to be the suspect's accomplices, according to Mounties.
Investigators believe the attack was targeted, however the suspect is not known to the victim or her husband.
Sinclair said she has suffered scarring to her face, her eyesight has been affected and her gums and tongue have been blistered by the acid.
The suspect is described as a Caucasian male in his 20s or 30s, approximately 5'6″ to 5'10″ tall, with very short blond or light brown hair.
He had no facial hair and was wearing a black ball cap, dark hoodie, checkered shorts, white running shoes, and carrying a clear glass-type mug with clear liquid in it.
"This attack had devastating consequences for the victim, considering the weapon used," said Paquet. "Over the past five months we have been working diligently on this case and are now hoping that the public will be able to assist us in apprehending the individual responsible."
Paquet said the motive for the attack is not known.
