Residents, in the 1900 block of Pacific Court off Sutherland Avenue in central Kelowna, were awakened to the sounds of screaming in the street at around 11:45 p.m. Thursday.

When police arrived they found a 37-year-old male suffering from wounds to his arms and head. The victim indicated that he had been robbed by two males, one of whom had a knife.
