RCMP look to speak to good samaritan

On April 3, the Kelowna RCMP were called to assist BC Ambulance Service on Gordon Drive

Kelowna RCMP are looking to speak with an unknown male who helped a woman who had been assaulted in early April.

RCMP are looking to further their investigation as they urge the man to come forward, saying he may possess valuable information about an alleged incident being investigated by police.

On April 3, 2017 shortly after 11:30 pm, the Kelowna RCMP were called to assist BC Ambulance Service on Gordon Drive.

Ambulance crews were on scene assisting an injured woman, reportedly discovered by a security guard on patrol, who claimed she had been assaulted earlier at a second location.

Police have been told that at approximately 10:30 p.m., the woman, who was walking in the area of Gordon Drive and Bernard Avenue, was approached and pushed to the ground from behind by two unknown individuals, who subsequently ran away with her purse and cigarettes.

The victim, who sustained non-life threatening injuries to her face, was assisted by an unknown male who walked the woman home and managed to locate and recover the woman’s abandoned purse along the way.

If you have any information about this incident, or you were the individual who provided the victim with a safe escort home, you are asked to contact the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300.
