A Kelowna man has been arrested after allegedly positioning himself near a bike trail and chucking rocks at cyclists. 

The rock-throwing occurred June 7 just before 11 a.m. on a bike trail near the Highway 97 UBCO overpass. Frontline officers attended the area and located the 34-year-old suspect who refused to co-operate with officers and attempted to flee on foot.

"He was arrested after a short foot pursuit and was transported to Kelowna RCMP detachment," Cpl. Jocelyn Noseworthy said in a press release.

He has since been released from custody on conditions for a future court date.

This matter will be forwarded to B.C. Prosecution Services for review and charge consideration.
