Kelowna RCMP seek suspects, getaway vehicle in Friday evening stabbing
Police in Kelowna are asking the public to keep an eye out for a stolen vehicle that was used during a stabbing on Friday evening.
On Friday around 9:15 p.m., Kelowna RCMP were called to the 1000-block Wilson Road for the report of a stabbing.
First responders arrive to find a victim, a 20-something-year-old Kelowna man, suffering from an apparent stab wound and being tended to by a group of bystanders. He was taken to hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.
Investigators are now searching for two male suspects associated with a stolen vehicle they believe was used as the getaway vehicle during the stabbing.
One suspect wore a pair of shorts and a T-shirt. The other suspect was described as a heavy-set, balding Asian man wearing shorts and a T-shirt.
The suspects are linked to a stolen vehicle, a white 2013 four-door Dodge Dart with the B.C. licence plate GX209E.
“RCMP is actively searching for the crime vehicle at this time,” said Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey with the Kelowna RCMP.
“Anyone who spots the Dodge Dart abandoned or mobile on our roadways, is urged not to not approach it and call 911 immediately.”
Police say the stabbing was an isolated event and was not random.
Anyone who witnessed the stabbing or who may recognize the suspects or the stolen vehicle is asked to contact Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300.
