A man is in custody after an alleged stabbing in downtown Kelowna.

Just before 3AM on Sunday, emergency personnel were called to the 400 block of Lawrence Avenue.

There they found a man bleeding from a pair of stab wounds in his upper body.

Police say he was tracking his allegedly stolen cellphone when he got into an altercation with another person.
