A West Kelowna woman, 33,  is healing from an attack that came courtesy of a couple who worked together to knock her out when she wasn’t looking.

“West Kelowna RCMP received a report of an assault in the area of Aberdeen Road and Dunbarton Road,” said Const. Kris Clark.

“The victim had been out for a walk when she was approached by another woman, asking for a cigarette. An unknown man then came up from behind and knocked the victim unconscious.”

Neither suspect could be located but police continue to investigate. They’re urging anyone walking late at night to employ the buddy system and never walk alone.

Anyone with information is asked to call the West Kelowna RCMP at 250-768-2880, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or online at www.crimestoppers.net to report.
