Burnaby RCMP is investigating a disturbing and brutal attack on a young woman inside a lift over the weekend.

The video shows a man and a woman standing inside the elevator talking, before the man suddenly starts punching and kicking the woman.

The victim falls to the ground as the man continues to attack her with more kicks and punches, before picking up what appears to be his phone on the elevator floor and running away.

The woman initially reported that an unknown man entered the elevator and attacked her.

Police now say they believe the man and woman, who can only meet "for a short time," spent some time inside a suite in the building before the attack and entered the elevator together.

The suspect is described as a five-foot-tall Asian man with slender build and black hair, and was last seen going north on Nelson Street, wearing a black jacket, black pants and red and black shoes .

Police expect the man to turn himself in, but he is also asking someone to recognize the man in the video or who has some information about the attack to contact Burnaby RCMP or Crimestoppers.
