Peel police are seeking witnesses and information in their investigation of the attempted murder of a woman found with life-threatening injuries in Mississauga on Wednesday night.
The 44-year-old woman was discovered in a residence on Bayberry Dr., in the Meadowvale area, around 8 p.m., said police. She was taken to a trauma centre, where, they said, she remains in critical condition.
Police said that a forensic investigation of the residence on Thursday revealed evidence of a crime, including the weapon they believe was used on the woman.
Const. Akhil Mooken, a spokesperson for Peel police, said the woman was harmed with an “edged weapon,” but said police are not releasing more information as of yet.
They are appealing to the public or any witnesses to come forward with information by contacting police directly or anonymously through CrimeStoppers.
