Police seek suspect after assault in Kelowna parked

Assault occurred at approximately 2 a.m. April 13 in the Chapman Parkade.

Kelowna RCMP are asking for the public’s assistance to identifying a suspect in an assault committed during the early morning hours of Wednesday, April 13.

It wasn’t until 11:42 a.m. on April 13 that Kelowna RCMP received a report of an assault that had occurred at approximately 2 o’clock that morning in the Chapman Parkade on Lawrence Avenue in downtown Kelowna.

Police were told that the victim had been approached by an unknown suspect who struck the victim in the head several times and knocked him to the ground. The suspect reportedly took the victims money from his wallet and departed on foot from the parkade.

The victim later sought treatment at a medical clinic before reporting the incident to police.

The suspect was described to police as:

  • a Caucasian male
  • with noticeable facial acne
  • wearing a black hoodie, with the hood up and jeans.

“The RCMP would like to encourage the public to report any incidents such as these immediately to police,” said Const. Jesse O’Donaghey in a press release issued on April 19.

“This increases our chances of locating, identifying, and arresting the suspect and in some cases recovering any stolen property. It also greatly reduces the risk of the suspect further victimizing other members of the general public,” O’Donaghey said.

The RCMP are continuing to investigate and ask anyone with any information to contact Const. James Van Camp of the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300.  Remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477, leaving a tip online at www.crimestoppers.net or by texting your tip to CRIMES (274637) ktown.
