  Ottawa man, 41, sought in connection with Remembrance Day street attack Ottawa police are looking for a 41-year-old man in connection with an attack “in the 300 block of Cumberland Street” on Nov. 11 in which a man was seriously injured.  The victim’s injuries are not considered life-threatening.

A man was arrested Wednesday in connection with a violent weekend attack on a woman in a bathroom at Memorial City Mall. Houston police said a woman was washing her hands Sunday morning in a mall bathroom when a man wrapped a trash bag around her neck and began to choke her.

Jordan M. Cissell, 25, of Louisville, was arrested Monday on rape, robbery, sodomy and kidnapping charges. Cissell forced his way into the woman 's car at gunpoint and robbed her before forcing her to drive him away from the location, according to a Louisville Metro Police Department arrest report.

The brother of an Ottawa woman who was beaten and choked while vacationing at a resort in Mexico says he is hopeful justice will be served now that a man is under arrest in connection with the attack.

The Canadian consulate officials also told the family Ricardo N. is from Mexico City and works as either a chauffeur or a truck driver, said Mathew. 

Aside from that, the family doesn't know much about him, he said.

"No one's really given us any kind of motive much of a story about why this happened," he said.

"We know absolutely nothing about the police investigation, what they've looked at, what their thoughts and theories are. Nothing has been explained to us."

Canadian consular officials warned the family they may not get those answers until after the judicial process is complete, he said.

Mathew said his sister is planning to speak with Mexican prosecutors in a couple days. He is confident his sister's vision is now good enough to pick out her attacker in a photo.

"My sister had seen him previously so she'd be able to identify him," he said. She still has blurry vision in one eye and double vision in the other.

Mathew said the Cancun hospital staff and facilities have been very good. He hopes his sister will be well enough to fly home by the end of November.
