KELOWNA - Police in Kelowna have released more information regarding an assault that took place out front of a local restaurant last month.

Kelowna RCMP have released video surveillance images of an unknown man in efforts to further their investigation of an alleged assault that took place in late November, according to an RCMP media release issued today, Dec. 27.

Police say on Nov. 25 at 7:17 p.m., officers responded to a disturbance involving an assault in the 3000 block of Pandosy Street.

The male victim transported to the hospital but suffered non-life threatening injuries, police say.

"An image of the suspect was captured on video surveillance equipment monitoring a nearby business," Kelowna RCMP Cpl. Jesse O'Donaghey says in a media release. "Police are now turning to the public for their assistance in identifying the male they believe was involved in the physical altercation."

Police say the man is Caucasian, in his 30s, muscular build, light-coloured hair, a short beard, and was seen wearing a dark blue hoodie, black pants, and a black ball cap.

Police are urging the man in the photographs to come forward and speak with investigators.

Anyone who can identify the suspect in the photo or any witnesses who have not yet spoken to police are asked to contact Kelowna Const. Sean Odermatt at 250-762-3300.
