April 07, 2021 - 12:10 PM

A 25-year-old Kelowna man is in jail after allegedly attempting to rob a delivery driver.

A delivery driver was getting into his vehicle April 2 just after 8:40 p.m., in the 1700-block of Ross Road in West Kelowna when an unknown man allegedly struck him with a blunt object and attempted to steal his vehicle.

RCMP said, in a press release, the victim fought the attacker off, and the man fled the scene on foot. The victim suffered minor injuries as a result of the attack.

West Kelowna mounties flooded the area and the suspect was located and arrested a short time later without incident.

The B.C. Prosecution Service has approved charges of robbery and failure to comply with a court order against 25-year-old Kelowna resident, Kurtis Sanderson. He has been remanded in custody until April 8.
