Police probe alleged Canada Day assault


The Kelowna RCMP are on the hunt for a trio of suspects following an alleged assault on Monday night.

Near midnight, officers responded to reports of a physical altercation in an alley near the 1600-block of Abbott Street.

When they arrived, police found a group of bystanders tending to the injuries of an unconcious man.

The victim, a Lower Mainland man in his 20’s who recently re-located to Kelowna, was transported to hospital for medical treatment. His injuries, although serious, are not believed to be life threatening in nature.

The suspects were last seen fleeing the area of the physical altercation on foot, through the back alleyways toward Okanagan Lake.

All three men are described as non-Caucasian males, each standing approximately 6 feet tall, with stockier builds. One suspect who reportedly had facial hair, was seen wearing a black hoody and black pants. A second suspect, believed to be in his 20’s, was clean shaven, seen wearing a grey t-shirt. The third was wearing dark colored clothing.

Anyone with information relevant to the investigation is asked to contact Kelowna RCMP or Crimestoppers.
