Four arrested in Vernon stabbing; no charges laid


Four people were arrested in connection with a stabbing in Vernon over the weekend, but charges have not been laid.

Officers responded to a report of a 38-year-old man with stab wounds in Vernon around 6:30 p.m. on Nov. 27, according to an RCMP news release.

Police say the man entered a location in the 2600-block of 27 Avenue, but they connected the incident to a home on the 2800-block of 35 Street.

"There will be a continued police presence at the residence as officers continue to collect physical evidence and complete their investigation," Const. Chris Terleski, Vernon North Okanagan RCMP spokesperson, said in the release.

There were four people in the home who were all arrested without incident and later released. No charges have been laid.

"While the investigation is in the early stages, police believe this to be a targeted act and there is no risk to the public," Terleski said.

Paramedics took the victim to hospital with serious, but non-life-threatening injuries.
