Mounties in Surrey, B.C., are looking for two suspects who sexually and physically assaulted a female sex-trade worker, putting her in hospital with serious injuries.
The assault took place early on Oct. 18, 2012, after the woman was picked up in north Surrey and then driven several kilometres away to a secluded area on Colebrook Rd.
Police describe the first suspect as a South Asian male in his mid-20s, who is six-foot-one and between 190 and 210 pounds with a lean build.
The second suspect, also a South Asian male in his mid-20s, is about five-foot-10 and between 200 and 230 pounds.
Police say they have secured what is believed to be DNA from the suspects.
The vehicle used in the assault is described as a metallic-blue, four-door sedan, with low-profile tires, dark-tinted windows, a rear spoiler and rain guards on the rear passenger window.
