“As the woman stood in the alley, the suspect vehicle drove alongside her and seemingly snapped a photograph of her with an electronic device,” Kelowna RCMP Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey said. “In an effort to get away and out of sight, the woman fled on food westbound along Davidson Road and turned onto Artela Road.”

The woman, fearing for her safety, ran to a nearby house and called her spouse to pick her up. Police were informed of the situation approximately 45 minutes later. The SUV was last seen travelling towards Okanagan Centre Road East.
