KELOWNA - A man was taken to the ground and kicked in the face by three others early Sunday morning at Lawrence Avenue and Pandosy Street.

Kelowna RCMP say two 19-year-old men were on Lawrence Avenue at about 1 a.m. and tried to spark up a conversation with five other men who apparently became angry. One 19-year-old was pushed and punched before falling to the ground. He was then kicked in the face, suffering non-life-threatening injuries. The other man was able to get away unharmed.

The five suspects are described as East Indian men, one of whom was wearing a light blue sweater.
