WEST KELOWNA – Two men were taken to hospital and a suspect is still at large after a stabbing in West Kelowna Sunday morning.
RCMP say two men with stab wounds were taken to a walk-in clinic at around 10:50 a.m., June 7.
Both men went from the clinic to Kelowna General Hospital with serious injuries, according to a RCMP media release.
“A 41-year-old male was treated and released from hospital while a 32-year-old male required surgery and is in stable condition,” Const. Joe Duncan says in the release.
A Global Okanagan report says the stabbings happened in the 2400-block of Saddleback Way. Neighbours said they heard yelling and swearing around the time of the incident, which resulted in police tape and officers remaining on scene throughout the day and overnight.
Duncan says officers have conducted numerous interviews with witnesses, adding the investigation is ongoing.
Even though a suspect has not been arrested, the general public is not at risk, he says.
Anyone with information on the stabbings is asked to call Kelowna RCMP at 250-768-2880. You can remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477, leaving a tip online at www.crimestoppers.net or by texting your tip to CRIMES (274637) ktown.
