RCMP apprehend an almost fully nude woman outside of the police station on Saturday

An almost fully naked woman was transported to hospital after creating a disturbance outside of the Kelowna police detachment on Saturday afternoon.

The situation unfolded outside of the RCMP detachment just before 1 p.m. on May 11.

Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey said officers attempted to de-escalate the situation and out of concern for her well-being, she was taken into police custody under the Mental Health Act and taken for a full medical assessment.

“We are not in a position to provide specific details about the altercation as we are still continuing our efforts to interview the individuals involved,” O’Donaghey said in a release.

Witnesses are encouraged to come forward to RCMP with any additional information.
