Kelowna man stabbed with screwdriver

A Kelowna man has been released from hospital after being stabbed with a screwdriver Friday night.

The Kelowna resident contacted Mounties at 10:16 p.m. after a man allegedly attempted to break into his residence.

The alleged victim confronted the suspect, causing the suspect to run away. The resident chased him a short distance before the two men began to fight.

The suspect, in effort to get away from the resident, used a screwdriver in a stabbing motion to get away, then fled on foot.

The resident did not suffer any life-threatening injuries and was released from Kelowna General Hospital a short time later.

Kelowna RCMP utilized the Police Dog Services in attempt to locate the suspect who fled the scene. Mounties were unable to find him Friday night, but according to Sgt. Brad Swecera, efforts will continue to identify and locate the suspect male.
