KELOWNA – RCMP are searching a neighbourhood in Rutland after a woman was assaulted with a weapon early this morning.

Const. Jesse O’Donaghey says in a media release RCMP were called to a residence on Franklyn Road shortly before 6 a.m. Aug. 16.

“The Kelowna RCMP responded to a report of an alleged assault with a weapon committed inside a residence in the 400 block,” O’Donaghey says. “The victim, a Kelowna woman in her 20s, was transported to hospital with what police to be non-life threatening injuries.”

The victim and the suspect are known to each other, he says, and this appears to be an isolated incident.
