Assault Spree in Downtown Kelowna

Kelowna, BC – The Kelowna RCMP have arrested one male who allegedly assaulted several bystanders early Thursday morning in Kelowna’s downtown core.

On August 02, 2018 at 8:47 am, RCMP received several reports of a male that seemed to be randomly attacking strangers in the 300 block of Bernard Avenue in downtown Kelowna.

One male was eventually taken into custody, but not before he allegedly assaulted five random strangers with a metal bar. While in handcuffs the male continued to exhibit assaultive behaviour against the arresting officer and caused some property damage while inside the police vehicle. None of the victims received any life threatening injuries.

The male was exhibiting signs that he was under the influence of illicit drugs and he was ultimately taken to the Kelowna General Hospital for medical assistance. The male remains in police custody and will brought before a judge to face several potential charges.

Police are looking for any witnesses or potential victims, who have not yet spoken to police to contact the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300.
