Police are still hunting for a suspect in a 15-month-old Surrey kidnapping and assault case.

Meaz Nour-Eldin, wanted on a Canada-wide warrant, is the subject of Crime Stoppers‘ “Crime of the Week” fan-out for the week of Nov. 17.

Nour-Eldin, 22, is Somalian, six feet one inch tall, 181 pounds, has brown eyes and black hair, and has tattoos on his left hand, left wrist and upper torso.

“Investigators believe Nour-Eldin may have fled to other parts of the country, including possibly Quebec and Ontario,” said Tony Sullivan, operations manager–public safety for Metro Vancouver Crime Stoppers.

‘These charges stem from an ongoing Surrey RCMP Serious Crime Unit investigation,” he said. “This was an isolated and targeted incident and additional suspects have already been charged and remain in custody for this incident.”
