Five people were arrested in Kelowna following a Saturday night home invasion earlier that night.

West Kelowna Mounties received a report of an assault with a weapon on the 3000 block of Boucherie Road, Oct. 20 11:15 p.m.

“Apparently, three men burst into the house, striking the resident several times with a blunt object before the 40 year old Kelowna man could make his escape,” said Const. Kris Clark.

“The three suspects fled the scene in a green Chevrolet Lumina van with two other associates. Police located the vehicle on Harvey Avenue coming off of the bridge and conducted a vehicle stop as it turned South onto Pandosy Street. All five occupants were arrested and the weapon recovered.”

The 40 year old Kelowna man suffered minor injuries.

The investigation is ongoing and the suspects were released on a Promise to Appear for Court at a later date.

Anyone with any information regarding this crime is asked to call the West Kelowna RCMP at 250-768-2880. Remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477, online at www.crimestoppers.net or text to CRIMES (274637) ktow
