Stolen Sedan Used as Getaway Car
RCMP are turning to the general public for their help in locating a stolen vehicle, they believe was involved in an alleged assault with a weapon Friday evening in Kelowna.
On June 14, 2019 at 9:13 p.m., Kelowna RCMP received a report of stabbing in the 1000-block of Wilson Road. Emergency crews responded to the area to find the victim bleeding from an apparent stab wound and being provided first aid treatment by a group of bystanders.
The victim, a Kelowna man in his 20’s, was medically assessed at the scene by emergency paramedics. He was transported to hospital, by BC Emergency Health Services, for medical treatment of his injuries which are believed to be non-life threatening in nature at this time.
As part of their ongoing criminal investigation, police are now searching for two adult male suspects, who were associated to a stolen white 2013 4-door sedan Dodge Dart, bearing British Columbia licence plates GX209E. Both suspects were described as wearing a pair of shorts and a t-shirt. One of the suspects was further described as an Asian male, heavyset and balding.
“RCMP are actively searching for the crime vehicle at this time,” states Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey, Media Relations Officer for the Kelowna RCMP. “Anyone who spots the Dodge Dart abandoned or mobile on our roadways, is urged not to not approach it and call 911 immediately.”
“RCMP have reason to believe this was an isolated event, and not a random attack,” adds Cpl. O’Donaghey.
