Toronto Police Service (TPS) is asking for help from the public to find a suspect who allegedly shoved a woman and left her with "life-altering injuries."
TPS reports that the assault happened on November 27 at 9 a.m., when a 62-year-old woman was walking down Danforth Avenue, west of Rhodes Avenue, on the north sidewalk and was attacked.
The suspect, who police described as a 30 to 40-year-old woman, was walking up to the woman from the opposite direction and assaulted her "without warning," according to a press release.
Police said she pushed the woman with both of her hands and knocked her to the ground before fleeing the area where she was last seen headed south on Rhodes Avenue.
