Richard Irving Duncan, 37, will be charged with aggravated assault and possessing a controlled substance after allegedly stabbing a younger man early Saturday morning.

The incident occurred outside Tonic’s Pub on the corner of Pandosy Street and Lawrence Avenue after an altercation between the 20-year-old victim and a group of four others saw Duncan stab the young man in the arm.

Apparently a verbal altercation between Duncan and the victim escalated on the street corner until he allegedly stabbed him twice in the arm. A description of the suspect was provided to police as they arrived on scene and the Duncan was quickly taken into custody having already caught the attention of police.

“He was actually seen by the (RCMP) member on his way to the incident,” said Kris Clark, Kelowna RCMP spokesperson, noting he fled the scene on foot.

The alleged weapon was recovered from the rooftop of a nearby business.

Duncan is expected to make his first appearance in court today.
