KELOWNA – A 30-year-old Kelowna man was arrested in Rutland early this morning for threatening and chasing a stranger with a knife.

Kelowna RCMP Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey says in a media release the events unfolded along Highway 33 West between Dougall Road and Rutland Road around 12:30 a.m. today, Nov. 16.

Police received a report a Kelowna man in his 20s had been chased by someone who also threatened him with a knife.

The victim was able to provide RCMP with a detailed description of the man and where he was last seen.

“Officers located an intoxicated individual matching the suspect’s description not far from the scene,” O’Donaghey says in the release. “A search of the suspect, incidental to his arrest, resulted in the seizure of two knives.”

The victim was not injured and a 30-year-old Kelowna man was held in police custody overnight. He faces charges related to the incident.
