Surrey RCMP are asking for the public's assistance to locate three men they believe to be involved in an alleged acid attack five months ago.

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.

Surrey RCMP is requesting anyone with information contact a tip line at 604-599-7676 stating file number 2013-118333 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS to remain anonymous.

Wouldn't it have been more effective to ask the public for help right away? By now, these a$$hats might be in Timbuktu, have beards or moustaches, etc.

No matter, the people that do investigations get paid every two weeks regardless.

I think if they are caught then they should have acid thrown in their faces as well. Then they'd think twice before trying something as horrible as this again.

Freaking cowards.

From the screengrab on the video, they almost look like skinheads.

I think irate former customer is the least of it, psychopathic potential murderer is more to the point. Muriatic acid (diluted) is good for removing old paint off concrete and can be deadly. They'll be caught, just hope the judge has gonads!

Exactly (but there could be more to this story)
