PENTICTON - A knife was used during fight among several young people at Penticton park yesterday evening.

Cpl. Don Wrigglesworth says police were called to Lions Park around 6 p.m., June 5, after reports of a group of youth fighting.

One of the young people involved was treated for a small cut on the back of his neck and treated at Penticton Regional Hospital. 

He told police he was at a friend’s home when he fell on a knife, but investigators say he was part of the fight.

RCMP continue to investigate.
