A male who pointed a pistol at a female, working in a yard off Stamps Road Friday, is wanted by police.

North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP received a call from the resident who said a male, unknown to her, parked nearby and approached her at around 8:09 p.m. while she was working on her property, Cpl. Jon Stuart says in a release.

"He produced a handgun, which he pointed at her, and told her to get on the ground.

"When she refused, he grabbed her shoulder in an attempt to force her down. The female resisted him and, after a dog on the property barked and growled at him, the male fled the area in a vehicle."

The male is described as a stocky Caucasian, approximately five-feet 10 inches, who was clean shaven.

He was wearing a black, curly wig, a green trucker-style cap, a black hoodie, and a dark shirt and jeans.

The suspect's vehicle is described as a silver/beige, late 1980's Honda Accord-style car with pop-up headlights

and a loud muffler, Stuart says.

Witnesses or folks with information regarding the suspect or vehicle, should call the North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP at (250)748-5522, or call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
