The woman was released after the initial arrest but was apprehended again under the Mental Health Act.

“This was an isolated incident and the RCMP are not seeking any additional suspects,” Kelowna RCMP Supt. Kara Triance said in the release.

“Neither the victim nor suspect were known to police prior to this incident.”

The B.C. Prosecution Service will determine if charges will be laid in the case, RCMP said.
