Mission RCMP are seeking the public’s assistance to identify the suspect of a “disturbing incident” in which a young retail employee was allegedly jabbed with a needle by a stranger.

Just before 4 p.m. on July 9, a man walked up to the employee at his workplace at the Rona, located at 7072 Wren St., and poked him with what looked like a needle, according to the Mission RCMP.

The assault appears to have been unprovoked, police say, and the young employee went to the hospital to undergo blood work testing. He then provided a statement to investigators.

Mission RCMP released an image of the suspect on July 12, and are asking anyone who can identify the man to call their non-emergency line: 604-826-7161.

As of July 20, police are still waiting on a tip to identify the suspect.
