“The motive for the assault isn’t clear, but officers do not believe this incident was random,” said Const. James Grandy. “We’re asking for anyone who recognizes either suspect caught on video surveillance to contact us.”

Investigators are asking anyone who can help identify either suspect, or has any information about the incident, to contact the Penticton RCMP at 250-492-4300.
