The suspect is described as Caucasian, standing between six feet to six feet three inches with a thin to medium build, short or balding hair and blue/grey eyes.

RCMP members did set up a containment area when they arrived on scene and activated Police Dog Services. While they did recover “substantial evidence,” they did not find the suspect.
