Kelowna RCMP are still looking for a person who they say assaulted a Kelowna man as he was walking home from the downtown area Feb. 6.

The 23-year-old was allegedly attacked between 11:30 and midnight on Ellis Street between Harvey Avenue and Buckland Avenue.

Crime Stoppers report the man was grabbed from behind by the hair, thrown to the ground and kicked numerous times. He suffered a broken nose, a concussion and required stitches to his face. The motive of the attack is unclear and he wasn't robbed.

As well, a commercial break and enter case remains unsolved.

Police were called out March 4 to the yard of a concrete business located on the 1200 block of Findlay Road. It's believed suspects cut through the back fence sometime between March 1-4 and left with a $1,500 metal concrete chop saw. The saw was a 14" orange and white Stihl TS420, serial number 175779975.

Mounties say they were called to a break and enter in West Kelowna Feb. 21 just after 5 p.m. on the 2400 block of Alexandria Way. They say suspects entered through the front doors between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. and made off with the following electronic equipment: Toshiba laptop computer, Sony Vaio laptop, iPod Touch, iPod docking station, Xbox 360 and a Sony Playstation 3.

On March 4 in West Kelowna, the RCMP responded to a complaint that a rental property at the Barona Beach Resort located on Pritchard Drive had been broken into. The resident said thieves entered through the sliding glass door on the second level and left with two televisions, a green leather loveseat and couch set as well as various kitchen items.

Anyone with information can contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477, or text to CRIMES (274637), keyword Ktown.
