"Her life will never be the same".

Police say the victim, who was home alone at the time, answered the front door at around 8 p.m. and had a brief conversation with the suspect, who was dressed all in white and wearing black gloves.

Police believe the weapon that was used was created to be used by hunters to take down large game such as moose and deer.

Police have released video and photographs of the suspect hoping someone in the community can help identify him.

At the press conference, police displayed a similar crossbow and arrows to the ones used in the attack, which are designed for hunting big game like moose.

"This was most definitely a targeted type of attack", Kettles said, adding that "the crossbow was never removed from the box" during the encounter. "We're open to anything at this point and we're looking at all possible investigative avenues as to why this attack may have been carried out".

"The suspect may have attended with another individual", he said.

In the meantime, police are appealing to the public for help identifying the suspect, adding that aside from wearing a baseball cap, he did not hide his face.

The male suspect then ran away from the porch before jumping in a dark-colored pickup truck parked nearby and fleeing the scene, police said.
