Kelowna RCMP now say 8 people injured during fight at bush party

March 29, 2021 - 3:11 PM

Kelowna RCMP now say eight people were injured at a bush party on Postill Lake Road that turned violent.  

A report of multiple stabbings at a bush party was brought to the attention of RCMP, the Kelowna Fire Department and BC Emergency Health Services were called to the Postill Lake Road area just before 2 a.m. Sunday, March 28.

"The initial investigation has revealed that a group of teenagers were having an outdoor party on Postill Lake Road when a second group arrived at the location. The situation quickly escalated into a violent altercation between the parties," RCMP said in a press release.

A total of eight people were brought to the hospital by BC Emergency Health Services for treatment of injuries sustained in this incident.

A 25-year-old woman was treated for injuries caused by a blunt object. Four adult men (ages 19, 19, 19 and 18), and a 17-year-old male youth were treated for non-life-threatening stab wounds in hospital and later released.

An 18-year-old man and 16-year-old male youth were treated for serious stab wounds.

“This is a large and complex investigation, and we are still in the beginning stages of gathering evidence and speaking to witnesses, victims and suspects,” Cpl. Jocelyn Noseworthy of the Kelowna RCMP says in a press release.

The adult man who was arrested has been released without charge pending further investigation, and West Kelowna RCMP has identified further potential suspects in the matter from both parties.

If you were present and haven’t spoken to officers yet, RCMP is requesting that you call the West Kelowna RCMP General Investigation Section at 250-768-2880.
