Man arrested for random assaults with metal bar in downtown Kelowna

August 03, 2018 - 12:34 PM

KELOWNA - Police have arrested a man who allegedly assaulted several bystanders early yesterday morning in Kelowna.

On Aug. 2, at about 8:47 a.m. Kelowna RCMP received several reports of a man that seemed to be randomly attacking strangers in the 300 block of Bernard Avenue in downtown Kelowna. He was eventually taken into custody, but not before he allegedly assaulted five random strangers with a metal bar. While in handcuffs he continued to exhibit violent behaviour against the arresting officer and caused some property damage while inside the police vehicle.

Police said he appeared to be under the influence of illicit drugs and he was ultimately taken to the Kelowna General Hospital for medical assistance.

None of the victims received any life threatening injuries.

Jordan Brown, born in 1990, is charged with assault, causing a disturbance, assault with intent to resist arrest and mischief as well as breaching probation.

It also appears this isn’t his first time he fought with police. In 2014, Brown was charged in Penticton with wilfully resisting a peace officer, assault with intent to resist arrest and numerous breaches.

Police are looking for any witnesses or potential victims, who have not yet spoken to police to contact the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300. Or remain completely anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477, leaving a tip online at or by texting your tip to CRIMES (274637) ktown.
