RCMP are trying to identify two men who may have witnessed a wellness check involving UBC Okanagan student Mona Wang and an RCMP officer.

Police claimed Sept. 9 the appeal to the public is in relation to an ongoing investigation.

Two men were captured on video in the lobby of a Kelowna residential building at 883 Academy Way, On Jan. 20 at approx. 5:45 p.m. This is believed to be connected to the wellness check of Mona Wang where she claims she was assaulted by an RCMP officer.

The RCMP Southeast District General Investigation Section (SED GIS) have not yet been able to identify the men.

At the end of August, an external police agency stated the Kelowna RCMP needs to complete further investigation into the alleged misconduct by one of its members involving a wellness check on a UBC Okanagan student earlier this summer.
