Two 19-year-old men were stabbed Friday night in the downtown waterfront area of Kelowna.

Police were called at around 11:30 p.m. June 4, about a number of people fighting in the area between Stuart Park and Kelowna Yacht Club, according to an RCMP media release. Both 19-year-old men were taken to hospital with what were believed to be non-life-threatening injuries.

“This area of Kelowna’s downtown is often quite busy into the evening and GIS (General Investigation Section) investigators believe that there were likely more witnesses to this stabbing incident who have yet to come forward,” Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey, of the RCMP Southeast District, said in the release. “We are urging anyone with any information with respect to this incident to contact police.”

People who have video surveillance or dash camera footage from that area are asked to review that video and bring forward images that might be relevant, the news release states.

“Anyone who may have captured cell phone video of the altercation, is urged to contact police immediately,” the release states.

People with information can call the Kelowna RCMP General Investigation Section at 250-762-3300.
