(Newser) – Police in Canada are investigating a bizarre and chilling attempted murder involving a fake delivery man and a concealed crossbow. The victim, a 44-year-old woman, barely survived being shot by the weapon at close range, reports the CBC. The details:

  • Fake delivery: The incident took place about 8pm on Nov. 7 in Mississauga, Ontario, reports the Toronto Star. A woman answered her door to find an apparent delivery man holding a large box. However, police say the box actually concealed a crossbow, which was pointed directly at her.
  • Video: Police released this video of the suspect. (Note: It does not show the actual shooting.) The man's face is mostly visible on the porch, though he might be wearing a wig. Police also point out his hat and shoes, hoping they might be familiar to someone.
