Kelowna RCMP are looking for a suspect after an 18-year-old woman was allegedly grabbed while she was out for a run.

The woman was running on Mclean Road near Junes Spring Road in Kelowna when she attempted to run past a man standing by a vehicle, March 3, at roughly 6:30 p.m., according to the RCMP in a press release.

The woman reported that the man grabbed her arm. She pulled free and immediately ran home and reported the incident to the police.

Police officers flooded the area and searched for the man, but did not locate the person.

The man is described as Caucasian, between 40-50 years old, with medium-length curly black hair.

The vehicle he was standing beside was described by the victim as a newer model black four-door SUV with a silver roof rack.

“At this time, we don’t know what the suspect’s intentions were, but we are working diligently to solve this incident,” says Cpl. Jocelyn Noseworthy of the Kelowna RCMP, in the press release.

“We are asking anyone who was in the area and saw something, or has dashcam or surveillance video of the incident to contact us immediately. We are also asking anyone who recognizes this suspect or vehicle description to call us.”

Anyone with information is asked to call the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300 or remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or by leaving a tip online.
