A Kelowna man faces potential firearms and assault charges after an incident on his property late August.
During the late evening hours of Aug. 27 the Kelowna RCMP responded to a report of a trespassing incident at a property along Postill Lake Road in the 6000 block
“While responding to the complaint, police learned that the property owner had armed himself with a firearm and allegedly discharged the firearm into the ground, when he confronted two men,” said Const. Jesse O’Donaghey, in a press release.
“Police spoke to the two males a father and son, were appeared to be fully equipped for camping in the area. Police learned from the men that one of them sustained non-life threatening injuries after allegedly being assaulted by the property owner.”
The property owner, a 33-year-old Kelowna man, was taken into custody and eventually released to appear in Court on a later date. Investigators gathered evidence to support possible charges against the property owner, including assault, utter threats and firearms related offences.
