Police are turning to the public to help identify the suspect in a hit-and-run earlier this month that has left the victim "bewildered".

Saturday, May 13 between 8:30 p.m. and 8:52 p.m., Cochrane District Crime Stoppers says a young woman was driving a Hyundai noticed that she was being followed by a black SUV. 

"After several blocks of driving around the young female then stopped her Hyundai vehicle on Lozanne Crescent in Timmins and the lady driving the black SUV suddenly sped up and drove right into the back of the Hyundai," says Crime Stoppers.

"She then pulled up beside the young lady, rolled down the window and shouted some profanities at her. This event was completely unprovoked and left quite a dent in the back of the Hyundai. Fortunately, the victim was not injured but was left completely bewildered by the events."

The suspect is described as a woman who is about 45 years old with dark hair and a pixie cut. She was wearing small, round sunglasses at the time. The black SUV may have front-end damage.
