One man in hospital, one in jail after knife fight in City Park

 

While patrolling City Park on their bicycles at 7:15 p.m. Monday Aug. 29, Kelowna RCMP members came across a fight between two males.
Police observed one male sitting on top of the other punching him.
The officers broke the two apart and noticed bleeding facial injuries on both males.
An ambulance was called to assist and after further investigation it was realized that one of the males had been stabbed in the upper torso during the altercation.
Witnesses report seeing the two yelling at each other, then the fight breaking out, and then police showed up.
The accused man, 54, was arrested and remained in custody awaiting a court appearance Tuesday morning. He is known to police and has a related criminal history. He is facing charges of assault with a weapon, as well as breach of recognizance for an earlier assault with a weapon charge from July.
The 55-year-old victim, also known to police, remains in hospital where he is receiving treatment for the stabbing injury.
Police seized a small pocket knife from the accused.
The two men do know each other and both are from Kelowna.
