Another groping on Greenway, Kelowna RCMP say

Woman was groped Thursday night.

Police say another woman has been groped while walking on the Mission Greenway.

The Thursday night incident came on the heels of an RCMP warning about three other groping incidents along the popular walking spot in the past week.

“Kelowna’s General Investigation Section is applying resources and methods in an effort locate and arrest the person responsible,” said Const. Steve Holmes.

In the most recent incident, a woman and her husband were walking on the Greenway, between Springfield and Benvoulin Roads, at around 7 p.m. when a man passed them on a bike and then turned around and groped the woman as he rode past her.

The suspect is described as a heavier set Caucasian man with facial stubble and messy hair.

The night before, police say a woman was walking alone on the Greenway near Gordon Drive when a cyclist who rode past her five minutes earlier approached her from behind and groped her.

The man in that case was described as in his late 30s with medium build and short brown hair.

The first two groping incidents happened on Sunday afternoon, police say.

Police continue to warn females using the Greenway to be cautious, to not travel alone and carry a cellular phone.

If anyone has any information about any of these incidents, they are asked to contact the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
